Curbside Pickup

A great way to use the library but still reduce indoor visitors is by searching and requesting items using the library catalog (or our new Wright Library mobile app) instead of browsing in person.

Once your items are being held, you'll be notified-- then schedule Curbside Pickup.


How to schedule Curbside Pickup

  1. Place a hold request
  2. Wait for notification that your items are ready
  3. Then schedule a pickup time.
  4. Call when you arrive 

Schedule a pickup

Get up to 10 items per pickup.
How to schedule a pickup:

  1. Place a hold request.
    • Use the online Library Catalog; choose "Curbside Pickup" as your pickup location.
    • Or, call us to request over the phone. Have your library card number ready when you call. 
  2. Wait to be notified you have holds ready.
    • You'll get an email, text, or phone call depending on your notification preference on file, letting you know your item is available.
  3. Choose a pickup hour.
    • Once your hold is available, schedule online or call us at 937-294-7171; library card number required.
    • If you have more than 10 holds available, tell us which ones you want first. (Otherwise we'll pick for you.)
    • Before your pickup hour, we'll pre-checkout your held items, so they're ready when you arrive! 
  4. Pick up your items. 
    • Arrive anytime during your pickup hour.
      • Call 937-294-7171 (menu option 1)to let us know you're here
      • We will bring your items out to your vehicle,
    • You may be asked to verify your library card number over the phone.

Note: Last minute hold requests are unlikely to be included in your pickup. If you schedule a pickup when no holds are available for you, your pickup will be canceled.


Return items in our outside book drops anytime. Recent returns remain on your card while they are quarantined for several days before being checked in or re-circulated. No overdue fines are charged during the quarantine period.

To help us manage safe material handling and physical distancing, please:

  • schedule a separate pickup slot for each cardholder.
  • schedule only after we notify you the items are ready for pickup.
  • schedule a time at least 4 hours in advance.
  • limit pickups to 10 items at a time.
  • wear face covering to protect our staff and other visitors.
