Curbside Pickup is available for Ferguson Library cardholders.

Reserve Your Items

Use our online catalog system to place holds on items using your library card number and PIN.

More information about placing holds can be found on our Using Your Card page.

When your reserved materials are ready, you will receive an email notice asking if you’d like to pick them up, have us mail them to you, or cancel the request.

If you choose curbside or walk-up pickup, you must make an appointment before coming. You’ll receive an email with instructions for reserving your pickup time.

COVID-19 Safety Notice

The safety of our staff and patrons is most important. All library materials have been physically quarantined for a MINIMUM of three days before being handled by staff or prepared for circulation to the public. Please continue to follow all state and local guidelines on safely handling any materials and packages you would normally encounter during this time.

Returning Your Items

You may return your materials to a Ferguson Library book drop at your convenience. Our staff will not collect them at curbside pickup. Remember you can renew most items if you’d like to keep them a bit longer.

More information about returns and renewals can be found on our Using Your Card page.
