How To Use Curbside Pickup:

  1. Place Your Holds – Place your requested items on hold using your Library Account online or using the MyLibrary! app.
  2. Schedule Your Pickup Time – Staff will call you to schedule a pick up time for your items during the Curbside Pickup hours for your branch. Please note that the library, all library services, and washrooms will remain closed.
  3. Pick Up Your Items – Arrive at the library during your designated time slot only to pick up your items. Please maintain social distancing while waiting for your pickup and if you are picking up items for others (friends, family, neighbours, etc.), please pick them up by yourself.
  4. Enjoy Your Items! – A receipt with the due dates for your items will be included. Please return items in the book drop. Staff appreciate your patience as we process a large number of items. Items may remain on your Library Account for up to 7 days upon return for quarantining purposes.
