Parking Lot Pickup is an easy, contact-free way to borrow our physical collections. Beginning July 6, appointments are required for Parking Lot Pickup. To use this service, simply:
Please do not make an appointment for pickup until you have been notified your items are ready to pick up.
Due to high demand, it may take a few days for your items to be ready to pickup. Thank you for your patience!
You will receive an automated email or phone notification alerting you that your holds are ready. After receiving your notification, please make an appointment to come pick up your items.
When you arrive at the library, park in one of the designated pick up spots and call the phone number posted at your parking spot. Do not exit your car. A staff member will package your items in a bag for your convenience, and place them on a chair in front of your vehicle. Please remain in your car until the staff member has delivered your items, and stepped away. You may then retrieve the items from the chair in front of your vehicle. Please respect social distancing of others in this area at all times.
We will quarantine all items for three days after they have been returned, per the recommendation of health authorities and professional library organizations. Books and other returned items will go into our return bins and will not be touched by staff until the quarantine period is complete. At that point, items will be checked in.
Right now, the building remains closed to the public. If you need help finding your next favorite book, our librarians are here to help! You can chat with a librarian in the chat box at the bottom right corner of this page. You can also request a custom book list created for you by our librarians:
We are currently only circulating items that are currently in the Wilmette Library collection. You will not be able to place items on hold from other libraries until inter-library delivery resumes (likely when Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan comes to our region).
