Contact-Free Holds Pickup Service

Holds Pickup Service

See our flier here.

Here’s how it works:

  • We will contact patrons who still have items on our hold shelf to see if items are still wanted.
  • You can request an item using the Local Request Holds Form using this link  
  • Please note that due to a large backlog of items, it may take us several days to fill your request.
  • When items are ready, library staff will contact you to schedule a pick-up time.
  • You will have a 45-minute window within the scheduled time to collect your items.
  • Items will be placed in bags labeled with your name and placed on designated tables outside the library’s upper entrance.
  • Please wear a mask and practice social distancing when picking up items.


When countywide delivery is activated, we will stop using the local holds request form. Library patrons will be able to place requests using the online catalog. Patrons unable to make online requests can always call the library reference desk at 412.531.1912 to have a librarian assist them with their requests.
