Curbside Virtually Anywhere

Partial Library Reopening with Limited Capacity Starts June 4

Curbside Pick-Up Service & Book Returns Continue

Slow and steady. As of Thursday, June 4, the Library District will be opening 24 of our 25 library buildings. We know that you come to our libraries to learn, to grow, to find community, and to pursue your dreams, and we are here to help! But for a while, this will be a different kind of library experience than you're used to. Social distancing will be the “new normal,” and to ensure everyone’s safety, there will be no available spaces for reading or studying, and limited computer access, as we have had to move our computers six feet apart. Browsing isn’t currently available because we need to keep our items sanitary, but our staff will help you select your items and pick them up at the library desk. Thank you for being patient with us as we figure this out together.

So many ways to connect. We have missed you and we look forward to serving you in this new environment! We also encourage you to take advantage of our Curbside Pick-Up Service; stream and download materials at; and enjoy our entertaining and educational library programs at

Curbside to go. This streamlined service makes it so easy to pick up your holds and drop off your returns. (All returns must be deposited in the outside Book Returns box.) Simply place your holds online (or by phone) and call your branch, where our staff will help you make an appointment. Then drive, bike, or walk up to the designated curbside area, and you’ll get to take home a bit of normalcy. Click here for all of the details. We look forward to helping you make your next great discovery!
