FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I don't have a library card! Can I still use this service?
You may register for a library card online.  Your first materials pickup will be scheduled as a Trunk Pickup (see below), so you can hold your photo ID or other proof of residency against your car window for verification.
What if I am unable to walk from my vehicle to the pickup location?
Let us know and we will arrange contactless Trunk Service at your vehicle.
 
What safety precautions is the library taking?
Library staff members are required to wear face masks and social distance while in common areas of the building. Disinfection protocols are ongoing.

What if I don't know exactly what I want?
No problem!  You can do one of these three things:

  • First, you can go to the online catalog and click on a link under "What's New?" found in the left column.
  • Second, you can fill out this form to receive Librarian recommended reads based on the preferences you list.
  • Third, you can fill out this form to receive a Librarian selected bundle of materials based on a theme or subject.
  • Finally, you can "browse the shelf" by item covers
 
How do I place holds on items?
Watch this short tutorial on placing an online hold, then go to the library's online catalog. If you discover you have forgotten your library account password, or don’t remember ever having one, click on “Forgot password?” to reset. If you need additional assistance in placing a hold, please don't hesitate to call.
 
Can I request items from other libraries?
Yes. The state-wide Inter-Library Loan System is available.  Place your request using this form or directly from the statewide catalog.  Items received via Inter-Library Loan are handled with the same safety protocols as our own materials.
