Curbside Pickup

You may now schedule curbside pickup for your holds

For those who do not feel comfortable coming into the library, we are offering curbside pickup of holds. If you have received a notice that your holds are ready to pick up, you may now schedule curbside pickup online or in our app. Curbside pickup is available Mon-Sat from 10 am-2 pm.

How it works

  • When you receive a notice that your holds are ready, you may schedule curbside pickup
  • Same-day appointments are unavailable
  • When your appointment is scheduled, your items will be checked out to your library account immediately, and the due dates will be based on your pickup date
  • When you arrive to pick up your items, drive to the east side of our parking lot and pull into a designated curbside parking space
  • Text “Check In” to the phone number listed on the sign
  • You will be asked your name, library card number, your parking space number, and the make/model/color of your vehicle
  • You will be instructed to open your trunk and staff will be right out to deliver your item

  • If you do not have a cell phone or do not have texting, park in a curbside parking space, walk to the double doors to our Receiving Room, and ring the bell. Staff will ask you the same questions, and you will be instructed to return to your vehicle and open your trunk. We will be right out to deliver your items to you!
  • If you decide to walk or bike ride to pick up your items, ring the Receiving Room bell. We will get your items out to you.

To help us offer you the best service, please keep to your scheduled appointment date and time. If you forget to pick up your items, we will contact you. If you need to reschedule, send an email to or call the Checkout Desk, 708.532.0160 ext. 3.
