Starting on June 1, curbside pickup and reserves will be merged into Grab-and-Go Reserves. Anything you place on reserve will be checked out to your account and placed on the Grab-and-Go Reserves shelf in the library's lobby. All you need to do is run in, grab the books with your name on them, leave the rubber band and get on with your day.
Grab-and-Go Reserves includes all the convenience of the curbside pickup services we offered during the pandemic, but now you can get your books any time the library is open. Patrons who normally use the reserve system to place holds on items can just grab them from the shelf instead of stopping at the circulation desk. Book bundles will also be waiting on the bottom of the Grab-and-Go Reserves shelf. Just grab the bag with your name on it.
Depending the notification preferences on your library account, you'll get an automated email or text when your books are ready, or one of the friendly DPL librarians will call and let you know you can come in to get your books. If you want to change your notification settings, you can either call the library or follow these easy instructions:
Log into your account on the library's catalog,
Click "MY ACCOUNT" at the top right corner of the screen.
Click on the "Notifications" tab
Change your notification preferences for each of the categories. If you want to get a text, select the phone number with the word "Text" in front of it.
