The pickup process is contactless. Once the items you’ve reserved are ready for pickup, they will immediately be checked out to your account.
This way, all you have to do when you get to the library is grab your items from the holds shelf—then go! There will be no need to stop by the circulation desk for checkout. The same goes for returns—rather than visiting the desk, there will be a designated bin where you can return any items you currently have.
The process of reserving an item is the same as always.
You can place a hold on an item online or over the phone, which will put your request into a queue until a copy becomes available. The wait time will vary depending on how many others have reserved the item and how many copies we have. Once your item is read, you will be notified via email, and then you can head to the branch to pick up your item.
Learn more about how to reserve items and what to expect when visiting one of our grab-and-go branches.
