Curbside Pickup Information
The library is offering curbside pickup of library books! You can request a library book to read for a class assignment or to read for enjoyment, and you are welcome to request multiple books at one time.
In order to request a book, log in to the library catalog and place a hold on a book. Please see the email you received from Dr. Kellum on October 2 to watch a short video that explains how to log in to the library catalog and how to place a hold on a book.
Each Monday, we will pull any available books that were requested. You will receive an email to let you know that your book is ready for you to pick up at the Studio Theatre entrance, and you will have six days to pick up your book (Tuesday - Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.). Any book not picked up by the following Monday will be removed from the Studio Theatre entrance and quarantined for seven days.
Once you are finished reading your book, please place it in the “Returned Library Books” box located at the Studio Theatre entrance. We will pick up the books each Monday. All returned books will be quarantined for seven days before they will be available for others to check out.
If you have any questions about curbside pickup, you are welcome to email us.
