Beginning Monday, May 11, the Wichita Public Library will begin curbside and drive up window service.
Customers who had holds placed on items before the Library closed in March, and any holds in queue that were initiated during the closure, will receive notifications to pick those up beginning Monday, May 11.
If customers would like to check materials out, they'll be able to place holds on items through the online catalog at catalog.wichitalibrary.org beginning Monday, May 18. They can also call 261-8500 during regular business hours for staff assistance. Notifications will be sent to customers once their holds are available for pick up.
When customers arrive to their designated Library branch to pick up materials, they will check in by calling the phone number on the outdoor signs or proceed to the drive up window. Library staff will ask for their name and library card number to verify their materials. Staff will bring materials to customers' vehicles in plastic bags.
If customers have materials to return to the Library, they may drop those off at any Wichita Public Library book drop.
Information about the Library's reopening plans will be updated on the Library's Virtual Branch at wichitalibrary.org/covid-19 and the Library's social media sites.
Wichita Public Library provides collections and services that inform, entertain and enrich the quality of life in Wichita. For more information, please visit wichitalibrary.org.
