To Arrange for Curbside Pick-up

Step 1

Contact the library with your borrowing request(s). Email or call 408-299-3568. Our catalog can be searched online here:

Step 2

Receive confirmation that we are able to fill your request at the requested appointment time. Currently, curbside pickup is only available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-4pm. Please let us know what time you will be coming to pick-up, and arrive on time.

Please do not visit the library until you have received notification that the requested books are ready for pickup.

Items not picked up will be checked in and returned to the shelves. You will need to submit a new request if you want to check them out at a later date.

Step 3

At your confirmed appointment time, pull your car into the staff parking lot on the south side of the building. If you do not have a vehicle, you will still need to wait by the side door in the staff parking lot. Call the front desk at 408-299-3568 to alert staff that you have arrived.

The staff can either load the books into the back of your vehicle (please open the trunk/back door of your vehicle), or you may take them directly off the cart, once staff has moved 6 feet away.

Please wear a mask and remain a social distance of at least 6 feet at all times.

Step 4

Renewals and Returns: Regular borrowing rules apply. Books must be returned to the library using the book drop located in the staff parking lot. We will not accept book returns at the front door. You may access your account and renew online at Otherwise, please call 408-299-3568 or email
