  • Curbside pickup is one of the first steps in JCPL’s Gradual Return to In-Person Services. When you receive notification that your hold is ready for pickup, you can make an appointment to pick up your item(s). Soon, curbside services will be available at eight of our 10 locations. Curbside pickup is contactless, and prioritizes the safety of you and our staff while making physical library materials available.

  • Curbside pickup is for patrons with physical materials on hold and ready for pickup at one of the 8 locations that will be offering this service: Arvada, Columbine, Edgewater, Evergreen, Golden, Lakewood, Standley Lake, and Wheat Ridge libraries. Curbside pick-up is contactless, and by appointment.

    Please wait to receive your notification via phone or email saying that your materials are ready. Then make an appointment to pick up your items by filling out a form or by calling 303-235-5275.

    Go to the library within your appointed time window and park in or walk up to one of the marked curbside pick-up spots.

    Once you’re in a designated pick-up area, call the number on the sign and a friendly JCPL team member will bring your materials to your car and place them in the trunk/hatch/back seat. The materials will be checked out to you and the receipt will be stapled to the bag that holds them. You can drive away and enjoy your new materials.

  • JCPL will adhere to, and follow, current orders and guidelines from governing authorities. Our process has been reviewed by the Jefferson County Department of Public Health.

  • Currently, we are unable to move your holds from one location to another. In the meantime, we’d be happy to connect you to other materials that are currently available on the shelf at your preferred location. Or, you can schedule curbside pick-ups of holds at more than one location.

  • The appointment scheduling form allows for including the card numbers of multiple people if you need to retrieve items for multiple people. The library card number for each person will also need to be provided at the pick-up location.
