New Curbside Pickup System 9/28

New Curbside Pickup System

PLEASE NOTE: Starting Monday, September 28, we will be using the system below to schedule curbside pickup appointments.

We welcome patrons who have received a hold notification to schedule a curbside pickup appointment. Hours for pick up are Monday–Thursday, 10 am–7 pm & Saturday 10 am–5 pm. The curbside pickup location is in the northwest Library parking lot, adjacent to the drive-up material return boxes. There are directional signs to guide you. 

We ask that you please do not come to pick up items if you have not made an appointment. If you have received a notice that you have a hold available, you can schedule a curbside pick-up appointment. 
Each appointment is 15 minutes, and you may come any time in that 15-minute window.

To Place Items on Hold

  • Log into your account on the Library's catalog using your Library card number and PIN.
  • Find an item you want.
  • Check “number of items available" to make sure we have at least one copy checked in. Items placed on hold together may not be ready for pick-up at the same time.
  • Click "Place a Hold” and confirm your hold request.
  • If you have trouble logging in, please call: 248.524.3538 ext.1 or email:
  • There is currently a limit of 15 holds per card.
