To check out items, you can place a hold on the phone or online. The library will notify you when your hold is available. To pick your items up, go to the library where you placed your hold and call when you’re outside. An employee will bring your items to a table outside for contact-free pickup. Due dates from this point on will follow the usual borrowing schedules. 

And, of course, the library’s robust selection of digital entertainment and education options is always available.
