How it works - The details here are tentative and could change at any time. We will keep you posted.

STEP 1: Place items on hold
Please limit holds requests to 10 items per household.

Choose ONE of the following methods:

  • Log-in to your library account on C/WMARS and request items yourself.

  • Call the library

  • Email through the website

  • Mail your holds list

STEP 2: Wait for confirmation that your items are ready for pick-up

  • You will be notified via email or phone when your hold is ready.
  • Wait times for holds placed for items owned by other libraries are currently longer than usual. We strongly suggest that you limit holds to items that are currently in our buildings to reduce wait times while the delivery service is unavailable.

STEP 3: Schedule your curbside pick-up appointment

  • Before you can pick up items that you’ve been notified are ready, you need to schedule a specific time slot. Call the library (phone numbers for each branch listed above) to schedule your pickup time.
  • This is required to pick up your items. No items will be available for pickup without a scheduled appointment.
  • Due to limited staffing, holds may not be available until the next day the library is open.

STEP 4: Pick up your items
After confirming your time slot, arrive at your pickup location sometime within that period, and you will find your items outside the library, checked out and ready to be picked up.

  • Holds will be left in labeled paper bags by the staff door, behind the library.
  • Please put any returns either in our book drops or the bins provided where you pick-up holds.
  • Returns will be quarantined for 3 days before being checked in. This means that items will remain on your account until we check them in.
