What is 24/7 pickup @ your library?
A convenient way to pick up requested materials any time, even when the library is closed.
How do I let the library know I want to choose this option?
When you request materials through the library’s website, select “24/7 Lockers” as your pickup location. This option is available for holds on materials that are currently checked out, requesting materials currently on the shelves, and MelCat items.
Where will I pick up my requested materials?
The materials you designate by selecting the “24/7 Lockers” pickup option will be placed in lockers located in the back of the library building. You will enter through the double glass doors in the back of the building (see Door and Locker Instructions).
How will I know when my requested materials are available for pickup?
When the materials you designate by selecting the “24/7 Lockers” pickup option become available, library staff will check the items out on your card and place them in a locker in the back of the building. You will then receive an email or phone call with the following information:
- What items are waiting for you.
- The latest date they can be picked up (3 days from when they are placed in the locker).
- When the materials are due (due date is calculated from the day the materials are checked out and placed in the locker, not based on when they are picked up).
- Step-by-step instructions (see Door and Locker Instructions) on how to access the building and the locker containing your materials. Because there are multiple steps and a unique code, we recommend that you receive this information via email.
Can I leave my car parked in the back driveway while I pick up my requested materials?
Yes, as this is a quick pick up. Just like using the book return is a quick drop off.
What happens if I don’t pick up my materials on time?
The material will be removed from the locker and checked in.
Can I access the main library through these doors?
