LIBRARY UPDATES

web header phase 2

Curbside Pickup

Monday through Friday 11am - 4pm

HOW IT WORKS 

  • Requests for materials can be placed in our online catalog. 
  • Visit the library during pickup hours once you receive a notification that your items are ready for pickup. We are limiting checkouts to 5 items per card. 
  • Park in one of the three designated spaces in the front of the library parking lot and call the posted number (360-293-1910) to reach library staff.  No cell phone? Ring the doorbell next to back book drops on 9th St. and staff will assist you. 
  • Let us know your name and the pickup spot number you are parked in. 
  • A staff member will bring your items out to your car. We ask that you wear a mask for the safety of our staff and other patrons.

 If you have items to return, please drop them off in our back book drops during return hours.

Book Returns

  • Our back book drop on 9th Street is now open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11am to 4pm.
  • Please drop off books during these hours only, as it gives our staff time to quarantine the books for 72 hours before processing.
  • We still can’t accept donations of books or magazines. While we appreciate your kindness, please keep any donations you have at home until the library and Friend Shop reopen in the future.
