Curbside service provides patrons an opportunity to safely borrow items from the library without having to come in. SCPL closed to the public on Monday, March 16 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and reopened on Tuesday, July 7.
Please return all borrowed materials to the book drops by the front and rear doors.
The curbside service process uses our existing holds system with different results. Instead of you coming in to pick up your items, we bring them to your vehicle.
Please stay in your vehicle while the staff member is bringing your items out. If you have items to return, please return them to the book drop after the staff member has returned to the building.
After we reopen on July 7, curbside service will continue on a limited basis.
Monday–Wednesday & Friday from 10 AM–4 PM
Thursday from 10 AM–6 PM
Saturday from 10 AM–1 PM
The hold system is limited to five total items per patron. This includes the limit of three DVDs per adult card, three audiobooks, three magazines, and other existing restrictions.
You can put a hold on books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, and magazines. Reference items cannot be put on hold.
You will receive an email or phone call from the Library once your item has been pulled. Note that if the item is not available because someone else has it checked out, you will not receive the item until the current patron returns it and the item has been quarantined for 72-hours.
Once you have received a notification that your item(s) are ready, usually within one or two business days, you have three business days plus Saturdays to pick up the item(s) during Curbside Service hours:
Curbside service hours are Monday–Saturday from 10 AM–1 PM with additional hours on Thursdays from 3–6 PM.
Please return all borrowed materials to the book drop by the due date listed on the due slip.
No. Inter-Library Loan is a process facilitated by an outside organization, and they have temporarily suspended service entirely.
