Curbside Pickup

Both library locations now offer curbside service. Simply place your holds online or by phone and wait for notification that your holds are ready. You can sign up for email or text notifications or you will receive automated phone notifications. Once your items are ready, head to your pickup location. There will be designated parking spots that have signs for curbside. Call the number on the sign and provide your library card number. We will check your items out for you and bring them to your vehicle.

Curbside pickup is available during daylight hours while the library is open.

Don’t have a cell phone? Call ahead to schedule a pickup. Call the Main Library at (616) 355-3700 or the North Branch at (616) 738-4362.
