Curbside Pickup - Books & Materials Request

 
1 Start 2 Complete

Since there is no delivery service between any libraries, placing holds won't work the way you might be used to for our new curbside pickup program. There are a few ways you can get materials:

  • Pick Up Your Existing Holds
    • Pick up existing holds currently on the shelves at all libraries.
  • Place New Holds
    • Place holds on specific items available in the library you intend to visit for curbside pickup online via LINKcat or by calling 608-315-5151 (toll free 888-266-7805).

Holds will be filled in the order they are received. After you get the notification that your holds are available, make a pickup appointment at the chosen library by calling the library.

Let a Librarian Pick with a CSA-Style Request

Fill out the form below to tell us what you're hoping to get and which library you want to pick them up from. Library staff will place holds on a selection of books and/or other materials for you that are already on the shelves from that particular library. It's like a Library CSA Box!

Holds will be filled in the order they are received. After you get the notification that your holds are available, make a pickup appointment at that library by calling the library
