  • Library staff will prepare your materials and notify you when they are ready for pickup. 

  • Patrons may pickup materials from the Library Main Entrance by signaling arrival at the desk provided.

  • Please see the home page for information on "grab bags" and other "browsing alternatives."

Please allow for at least one full business day to process requests. Patron accounts are updated online or you may call the library to check on the status of your requests. 

Where do I return items and when do they get checked in?

  • Items may be returned using the drive-up book drop box or handed in at the Library Main door.

  • Items returned will be quarantined for three (3) full days before being marked as returned. This will not result in late fines but will delay the return process of your items.
