More Details

Previous Holds

If you had something waiting to be picked up when we closed in March, it’s still here. Holds you placed before March 16 that weren’t ready yet are also still in our system. All hold pick-up locations have been switched to TSCPL Curbside Pickup. We’ll notify you when these items ready to be picked up.

How You’ll Be Notified

When your items are ready we’ll send a notice by the method you indicated (email, text, phone or regular mail). The notice will include instructions about what to do when you get here. Pickup hours are 9am-6pm Mon-Sat and noon-6pm Sun.

At Curbside Pickup

When you come to the library to pick up your items, be sure to bring your cell phone and your library card. Follow the signs to designated curbside pickup parking spots. Call the number on the sign to let us know you’re here. We’ll ask a few questions to help the pickup go smoothly. Then pop the trunk or open a back door. We’ll bring your items out  and we’ll put them in your car with a checkout receipt. There won’t be any contact between you and staff.


If you’re returning items while you’re here, please put those into the drive-up book return in front of the library. For everyone’s safety staff will not be able to take returns directly from your car. Likewise, we aren’t able to accept any donations of books or other physical material at this time.
