Moline Public Library to offer curbside delivery

Starting March 23rd, the Moline Public Library will offer curbside delivery for cardholders. Here is how it works:

  1. Call (309) 524-2481 between 10 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday where a
    library staff member will take the order. Patrons may arrange to pick up
    item(s) already on hold and/or request up to 10 items for check out. Items available can be found in the Library’s online catalog, www.molinelibrary.com. Alternately, a patron may request Library staff choose materials from a preferred genre (i.e. mystery novels or action comedies on DVD).
  2. Once a request is placed, the Library will fill the order and contact the patron to let them know items are ready for pick-up. Items will be held for 3 days.
  3. Upon arrival, the patron is asked to call the same number – (309) 524-2481 – and a
    member of the Library staff will meet the patron at the designated pick-up location at the
    library.
  4. This is a temporary accommodation with limited transaction availability. Returns should be returned to the appropriate receptacle. No new holds will be accepted. Fines, if applicable, should be paid online. Book donations to the Friends of the Moline Public Library Foundation will resume once the Library reopens.
