How does Curbside Pickup Work?

1.       Place a hold for items you would like in our Catalog, the app on your phone, or contact the library and we will place the hold for you.

2.       When your items comes in, if you have it setup for email notifications, you will receive a notice that your item is ready for pickup. If you do not have your account set to receive notifications, the library will contact you when your items comes in. You must contact the library to set up a time to pick up your items. Please have your library card available so that we can collect your information to check out your items.

3.       When you arrive at your scheduled appointment time, call the library at 708-841-3311 when you arrive in the parking lot. There will be a 15 minute window available after your schedule time.

Library staff CANNOT receive any items from you at curbside. Please put all returned books in the book drop. CDís and DVDís CANNOT BE PLACE IN THE BOOK DROP.
