Stop in for Sit-down Access Services

Schedule a Library Locker Appointment

Reserve your library materials online and schedule a library locker appointment to pick up your items.

  1. Request library materials. Use the library catalog to place holds on specific titles.
  2. After you receive an email that your materials are ready, schedule a library locker pickup appointment.
  3. Pick up your items from the library lockers, located just inside the double doors from the library’s parking ramp on Third Street. Materials are available in the locker for the day of your appointment only, and lockers are only accessible during library hours.

Due to the limited number of lockers and the size of the lockers, please understand that all requests may not be able to receive locker service. The lockers can typically hold up to 10 standard size books. If your holds or book bundles include more than 10 books or oversized items, we ask that you come into the library to retrieve your materials from the holds shelf. In addition, items such as laptops and telescopes must be checked out from the public services desk.

If the library locker service is full or you have an available item that you would like more quickly, stop into the library and retrieve your materials from the holds shelf during library hours. No appointment is needed. The holds shelf is located across from the Public Services desk on the lower level of the library.

Try a Book Bundle

Try Book Bundles, a new and convenient way to explore and check out library materials. Instead of requesting specific titles, tell us what types of materials you would like, and staff will select them for you.”

Here’s how it works:
1. Complete the Book Bundle Request Form. Pick the categories you are interested in (such as adult historical fiction, teen nonfiction, or children’s picture books). You don’t have to limit your choices to books. You can request types of music, movies, and magazines, too.
2. Library staff will gather materials, check them out to you, and notify you when the items are ready. Please allow 2 days for staff to complete the request.
3. After receiving the notification, pick up your book bundle at the library.
