Curbside How-To


Step 1: Arrive at Location and Notify Staff

When you arrive, look for a designated curbside pickup space. Text or call the number on the sign. Let us know you're here and what materials you are here to pickup (holds, printing, tax forms, registration prizes, etc.).

If you don’t have a mobile phone, call 303-235-5275 before you leave home to let us know you’re coming.


Step 2: Prep for Delivery

If you arrive by car, please open your trunk, car door or window. Either stand a safe distance away from others, or remain in your vehicle.


Step 3: Receive Your Items

A staff member will then place your items into your open vehicle as part of our contactless service. Confirm you have all the materials you need and enjoy your items from home!

Please note: Wait times may be longer during peak visitation times. We aim to meet every request as quickly as possible while keeping the health and safety of our staff and community a first priority.

Additionally, as all library materials are shared resources, we encourage you to practice good hygiene, including frequent hand washing and other practices recommended by the CDC.

  • Curbside pickup is one of the first steps in JCPL’s Gradual Return to In-Person Services. Curbside pickup is contactless, and prioritizes the safety of you and our staff while making physical library materials available.

  • 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 from 9am – 5pm, Monday - Saturday, and 12-5pm on Sundays, to pick up your holds. We will keep your holds on the shelves for 7 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 text or call the library phone number on the sign. Give staff your name and library 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.
