Curbside Connection


We know you miss browsing our collection for your new favorite book, movie, or magazine, etc. and that's why we have created Curbside Connection! Patrons can fill out a Curbside Connection form, which will ask questions about what you like (genres, authors, subjects, etc.) and then library staff will build you a personalized bundle of 5 items for you to check out!

Once we have put together your Curbside Connection request, you will be notified either by phone call, text, or email (depending on how you picked to be notified on your library record). The items will show up as "held" on your library record. Library staff may contact you if they have questions about your request. You will need to fill out a new Curbside Connection form each time you want new items.

Curbside Service

During this time, we are also asking everyone to not donate materials to the Library. While we are more than appreciative of our generous community, we are currently trying to balance providing curbside service while quarantining all returned items for a minimum of 7 days and do not have the space to process donations.
