Curbside pick-up instructions

1. Place holds

Curbside pick-up is for held items only and is done on a first come, first served basis during open hours.

Place holds in library catalogue

To get books and other library items through curbside pick-up you must first place the item on hold. This can be done:

  1. Via our online catalogue
  2. By phone during library hours

If you need a library card, or help placing holds please call 905-945-5142 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday or email

2. Wait for your pick-up phone call or email

Once your holds are ready for pick-up you will be notified via phone or email with curbside pick-up instructions.

Please be aware:

  • The library will notify you when your holds are ready, by email or phone
  • You can not pick up holds until you are notified
  • Contact the library at 905-945-5142 if you need to cancel your hold


3. Pick up your hold during open hours

Once you receive confirmation that your holds are ready for pick-up:

  1. We ask that you call us a minimum of half an hour before coming to the library so we can prepare your materials.
  2. Go to the parking lot at 18 Carnegie Lane during open hours
  3. Call or knock on the staff door once you have arrived
  4. Library staff will bring your materials outside where they will be placed on the bench. You may also return your materials at that time in the book drop.

If you have any questions please call 905-945-5142 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Saturday.

Returning library items

Our Book Return dropbox is open 24/7. If you need to return items, but do not have new ones to pick up, please return items outside of curbside pick-up hours above to avoid line-ups.
