Curbside Service

To check out a book, library patrons need to call the Library at 296.1148 with the list of books and their library card number and driver’s license or state id card number. Library numbers are listed on the card.

Staff will research to see if the book is available; if your particular book is not available, they will offer an alternative. Once your order is complete, Library staff will notify patrons via phone and books may be picked up at the front of the Library (north side of building by main door).

Curbside service is available during Library hours: Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
