Pick Up Holds In Library or Curbside

Holds: We will be resuming our normal holds procedures on July 6. Holds may be placed on materials using the online catalog or by calling the library. You will receive an email, text, or phone call when your materials are available and you may come to the library during open hours to pick them up. Please note our new hours of noon to 8:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and noon to 5:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Curbside Pickup: If you would prefer curbside pickup, please call the library to request it when your holds are available. We will arrange a time to pick up materials in front of the Library.  

Inter-library Deliveries: Other libraries are opening at different times and with different policies and holds on materials from other libraries may be significantly delayed. We recommend choosing materials available at the Durham Library where possible.
