Curbside Pickup

We are happy to offer the ease and convenience of our Curbside Pickup Service to all our patrons.

Simply place an item on hold, schedule your curbside appointment, and then pick up your items. A staff member will meet you at the entrance door with your materials. Its that easy. For directions and how to access what is available, click the button below.

PLEASE NOTE: Per county policy, fines over $20 must be paid in order to check out items.  Fines can be paid online by logging into your library account.

On-the-Go Book Club Bags

Our On-the-Go Book Club Bags can be checked out for up to 8 weeks. Late fees are $3 per day.

Each bag contains:

Multiple copies of the book
Large-print edition (when available)
Audiobook (when available)
A folder with discussion questions

See a Librarian at the Reference Desk for more information or to reserve a bag.

At-Home Delivery Service

We offer free home delivery of library materials to township residents who are unable to visit the library due to Short- or Long-term illness, Non-driver status (Senior) and/or Physical Challenge.

Once a month a volunteer or staff member will deliver library items to the patron’s home. The following month those materials will be picked up and a new selection will be dropped off. Specific books may be requested by title, and assistance is offered in selecting books by category.

To enroll in the At-Home Delivery Service program, the patron must complete the At-Home Delivery Service survery so that we can better assist in material selection. The At-Home Delivery Service is free. Overdue fines are not charged on homebound material; however, patrons are responsible for damaged or lost items. For more information about our At-Home Delivery Service contact Bridgette at (610) 356-1510, extension 705.
