Holds & New Pickup Information

Contact-Free Holds Pickup

The library has temporarily suspended all in-person services; however, you may use our contact-free pickup service to receive your library items.

  • You may continue to place holds online or by calling the reference desk at 412-531-1912.
  • When your holds arrive, you will be notified by phone, text or email.
  • Once you get this notification, call the library to schedule a contact free pickup:
    • 412-531-1912, option #2
    • Monday-Thursday: 10am-8pm | Friday: 10am-2pm | Saturday: 1pm-5pm

How it Works

  • Schedule a pickup by calling the library (see above).
  • Your holds will be placed on tables located in the upstairs library entrance at the scheduled time.
  • You'll have a 45-minute pickup window starting on the hour of your appointment.
  • Upon arriving, look for bag(s) labeled with your last name and first initial (we do this to maintain privacy).
  • Grab your bag and go. Items will already be checked out to your account.
  • Please wear a mask and practice social distancing when picking up items.
