Check out this convenience – curbside pickup now at EPL

Whether you’re after new books or classics, movies or music, we can help you with your library needs at curbside pickup. You’re just a few clicks and a call away from enjoying great stories and more.

First things first, all items are available to be held through our online catalog when you login with your EPL card. You also can call the location where you wish to pick up.

If you’re not sure how to place a hold, watch this short video that will have you doing it in no time.

Curbside service is available 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

During the pandemic, we’re allowing holds on DVDs. A limit of five may be held at one time.

We’re also allowing patrons to place a hold on up to three magazines.

All of the other usual rules are in place.

Circulation time for items remains the same: 21 days for books and CDs, seven days for DVDs and magazines. Simply hold the items you want and make sure your contact information is up to date. You will receive a message when your items are ready for pick up, then head on over to the branch you’ve chosen to pick up at.

When you arrive at the location, park in the designated spot and call the phone number on the sign. An EPL staff member will verify the last four digits of your library barcode and ask for a description of your vehicle, then give any additional instructions.

All items needing to be returned should be placed in the outside book drops.
