  • SCHEDULE – We will contact you when your items are ready for pickup and schedule a time for you to come to the library.
  • PICKUP – Your bag of items will be on a pickup table in the front entrance of the library labeled with your name.  Please keep a distance of 6 feet between you and others coming to pick up their items.
  • ENJOY – You now have library materials to enjoy!
