Library Starts Curbside Service

The Harrison County Public Library will offer contact free curbside pickup of books and DVDs beginning Monday, May 4.

“The Harrison County Health Department has approved our plan to keep the public and our staff safe,” said Alisa Burch, library director.  “We have heard from many in our community how much they miss the library and we are very pleased to get the okay to go ahead with curbside service.”

Here is how it works:

  • Patrons may place items they want on hold by using the online card catalog or by calling their local library branch.
  • The library will call patrons when items are ready to pick up.
  • Patrons are asked to call the library when they park in the library lot.  
  • Staff will place the items in the car trunk, empty passenger seat or on the car hood.

“For your safety and the safety of the library staff, we ask you to please remain in the car while your materials are delivered,” explained Burch.  “Our staff will be wearing gloves and masks to be as safe as possible.”

Any items to be returned should be placed in the library book drop before calling the library to pick up holds.  All returned library materials are cleaned, disinfected and quarantined prior to being shelved.

“We are working to make other library services available as safety allows,” added Burch.  “Look for updates on our website and our Facebook page.

      Hi Lois, 
      You will be able to place holds in the library’s online catalog beginning on Monday, May 4th. If you need assistance placing your holds, please send an email to or call your local HCPL branch, and we would be happy to help.

  2. I absolutely love this curbside option. My kids can still enjoy the books but stay safe from going inside with other people. This is awesome, hope this remains an option.
