Library Express: Curbside Delivery

Library patrons who find it difficult to visit the Library have the option to place holds on items and conveniently have the items delivered to their vehicle. Library Express is an option that may be useful for patrons with physical difficulties, compromised immune systems, or those who want to minimize exposure. 

What Can You Check Out With Library Express?

All items available and holdable in our collection will be available for Library Express. This includes books, DVDs and Blu-Rays, audiobooks, and music CDs.
