Curbside Service: How it Works

How do I place a hold for Curbside Service?

Place items on hold using the library catalog, or call in if you know what you are interested in. Be sure to choose your preferred library pickup location.

What do I do when my holds are ready?
When you are notified that your holds are ready for pickup, please call your library and request Curbside Service. Library staff will prepare your items for pickup and check them out to you.
How do I use Curbside Service to pick up my holds?

Go to your branch library’s pickup location and call the number listed on the sign for further instructions. Pickup locations for curbside service will be clearly marked and patrons and staff should strive to comply with social distancing recommendations.

It may be helpful to write your library barcode and last name on a large piece of paper to show through your vehicle window.

Once name verification has occurred, staff will deliver your materials. Staff may place your items on a designated table for pickup.

How do I return my library materials?
You may return your library materials using the exterior book drops at all locations. Please do not return items directly to staff as we are enacting a quarantine protocol for all returned items.
Are there any library resources I can use while branches are closed?

Yes. The library provides a wide array of digital offerings, including e-books, audiobooks, magazines, and streaming movies through our electronic resources on our website. Manage your account online – search the catalog, place holds, and renew items – at sjcpls.org. Also, be sure to follow our virtual programming on the library’s Facebook page.

What do you know about COVID-19 and library materials?

According to the National Institutes for Health (learn more here), the COVID-19 virus can survive up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel. To ensure the safety of patrons and staff, the library system isolates returned materials for 96 hours prior to check-in. It is understood that the virus is no longer a threat after this time.
