When you come to the library, look for the curbside pickup signs in the parking lot (there are no signs at The BookEnd).
How to Pick Up Your Holds
You can pick up holds at the library once you are notified by email, phone call, or postal mail that they are available.
Holds are available for pick up during library open hours. You can check for library hours on our locations pages.
Pull your vehicle into one of the numbered curbside pickup parking spots (except at The BookEnd, see below).
Have your library card number ready, and call the phone number on the sign.
Tell staff your name and library card number and let them know which parking spot you are in, what your vehicle looks like, or if you are on foot.
You may pick up items for family members if you have their library card number(s).
Please wait in your car and be patient while staff check out your held items to you.
For The BookEnd, there are no curbside pickup signs at the Spokane Valley Mall. At The BookEnd, call 509.893.8274 to request curbside pickup. You can pull up to the curb by the double doors in the upper-level entrance in Lot L at Spokane Valley Mall when you see library staff coming with your books.
Staff will bring your library materials out to your car or, if you are on foot, where you agreed to get them on the phone.
Staff can hand you your materials at your car window or can place them in your vehicle’s trunk, hatch, or side door.
If you prefer a no-contact option, staff will place your library materials on the hood of your vehicle, if that is okay with you, on the curb next to your vehicle, or directly from a cart for you to retrieve.
We ask that you please follow directions and leave promptly once you’ve received your holds so that others can use the spaces for curbside pickup. We appreciate your patience and cooperation in helping to make curbside pickup a successful option for all.
If you are traveling to the library on foot, by bicycle or motorcycle, or by bus, you can call the phone number on the curbside pickup signs in the library’s parking lot and explain your situation. Library staff will discuss how they will bring out your holds and how you should pick your items up curbside.
No mobile phone or service? If cell phone service is spotty at your library or you don’t have a mobile phone, call the library before you’d like to pick them up and arrange a day and time for pick up.
Due to parking, staffing, and building configuration, curbside service will look a little different from library to library.
