Pick Up at Curbside

  • You will receive an email or a phone message with instructions on how to make a curbside pick-up appointment. You may not change pickup location after you receive this notification. You will have 14 days to pick up your materials.
  • If you have multiple orders, you can pick them up during the same appointment. Make a note of this when you make your appointment and then feel free to ask about this when you arrive so we can double check. 
  • Bring your library card with you!

Note: Please do not drop by without an appointment.

Return Materials 


While we're not charging fines, please be prompt with your returns as others may be waiting to check them out. 

  • To return DVDs, books, video games and CDs, use our drive-thru book drops.

  • To return hotspots, oversized items, Kindle readers, Literacy Bags and Book Club Kits use designated bins at our appointment sites

With your and our safety in mind

OCPL FacemaskWe isolate items for 72 hours after they are returned to the library and when you check them out.

Our staff must remain physically distant from customers and each other. 

We ask that you wear a mask when using curbside service.

We appreciate your cooperation !
