  • READY FOR PICKUP – Wait until you receive an email, automated phone call or text confirmation that your materials are ready.

  • NOTIFY – Notify at the library at least 10 minutes in advance of pickup by calling 313-381-0374.

  • PICK UP – Contact us when you arrive to pick up your materials.  To ensure contactless delivery, please remain in your vehicle.

  • ENJOY – Read your books and enjoy your movies.  Check your date due slip and/or your account to confirm due dates.  Renew materials as needed, either online or by phone.

  • RETURN – Return items to the library’s drop slot, which is located in the back of the building. There is a sign saying "library book drop" above the library drop slot.
