Have materials on hold that are ready to be picked up? Book your safe and contactless Library Takout Appointment here!

Our Library Takeout service is a safe and easy way for customers to pick up their library holds while following responsible physical distancing.

Making your Appointment

  1. Browse our catalogue and place your hold.

  2. Once your hold request is processed and ready for a pick-up, you will then receive an email, text message or phone call confirmation for your hold and a link to schedule a pickup time. Please note that placing a hold does not automatically mean your hold is ready.

  3. Arrive for your contactless pick up at your scheduled time, and enjoy!

Picking up Your Materials

  1. One pickup allowed at a time in the designated area. Please wait your turn.

  2. Pickup bags will be placed on a marked table, organized by appointment time slots.

  3. When ready, approach the table and look for your paper bag with your name. Please do not touch any other bag. Verify your library materials inside your bag.

  4. If you have the correct library materials, you can take your package and leave through the marked exit.

  5. If you miss your appointment, you are able to pick up anytime before your selected branch closing hours. 

  6. Do not place or leave any personal items on the table. Do not leave any library returns or donations at the table.
