The Library building is currently closed to the public, but we are offering contact-free curbside pick-up services and digital programming! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Curbside Services

Curbside Pick-Up Service hours are from 11:00am – 2:00pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

How It Works

  • Place hold requests for library materials through our Online Catalog.
    • Need help placing a hold request? Call us during Curbside hours for assistance: (360) 378-2798
  • When your requested materials are available to pick up,  we’ll send you notification by text, email, or call by phone depending on your listed preference.

Curbside Pick-Up Window

  • After receiving notification, park and walk up to our Curbside Pick-Up Window during Curbside hours, and maintain six-feet of social distancing if in line.
  • Masks are required for Curbside Pick-Up Window service.

Car Delivery

  • If you prefer to have materials delivered to your vehicle, just park in a designated Curbside Pick-Up spot along the Guard St. fence.
