  • Curbside pickup is a contactless way to pick up your holds without leaving your car.

    To use our Curbside Service, simply place a hold and select one of the locations offering pickup. When your items are ready, you will receive a "ready for pickup" notification. Once you have received that notification, you can stop by anytime during open hours, opens a new window to pick up your holds. We will keep your hold(s) on the shelves for seven days.

    When you arrive to pick up your item(s), please park in a designated curbside spot (or walk up if you don't have a vehicle), and call the library phone number on the sign. Give staff your name and JCPL card number. Please open your vehicle trunk and stay or get back inside your vehicle. A staff member will then bring your item(s) out to you and place them in your open vehicle. These steps allow us to offer a contactless service that prioritizes the health of our community and staff.
