Curbside Pickup

Your school library is making it easy for students to checkout books to take home and enjoy. Students can login to their library account, reserve/place a book on hold, then the librarian will make the books available for home learners at curbside to “grab and go” or deliver the books to the student’s classroom.

Look for the curbside library “grab and go” service at your campus after Tuesday, Sept. 8. Check your campus library website or call your librarian for details and pick up times. Your library teams will follow the recommended safety protocols from the CDC and the Institute of Museums and Library Services.

Curbside “grab and go” and campus concierge book check out and return procedures include:

  • Students login their library account to browse and hold up to five book selections to be checked-out.
  • Based on availability, librarians will check out books and, when ready, will notify students through email.
  • Students learning from home will pick up books at their campuses designated pick up location and time.
  • Available books are delivered to the classroom for students on campus.
  • Books are returned through an exterior book drop and then quarantine for a minimum of 72 hours before becoming available to students.
