Custom Checkouts

Not sure what you want? Our librarians can put together a selection of items for any subject or age. From road trip audiobooks to sleepover board games, customized checkouts are our specialty!

Drive-Up Window

The drive-up window is located on the north side of the building. It is adjacent to the parking lot. The drive-up window offers many services to the patron. You can pick up reserved materials, return items, and renew your library card; all this can be done from the convenience of your car. The only service not available at the drive-up window is the issuance of library cards.

Outdoor Book Drops

The Outdoor Book Drops are on the north side of the building to the left of the drive-up window. These can be used 24 hours a day and are accessible by vehicle or on foot. The book drop consists of three separate slots. The slots are labeled for kids’ materials, adult materials and audio visual materials.
