To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to continue to serve our community, Lincoln Park Public Library will be opening in stages as we begin to make our services available again. Below is an outline of our initial plan as well as some FAQs.
Starting Today (Monday, June 8th), patrons are encouraged to return items via our library book drop at the back of the building (All items will be fine free through June & July). Patrons may start to place holds on Lincoln Park Library materials – items from our co-op of libraries will be available as individual libraries open up services.
Starting Monday, June 15 at 12 p.m., you will be able to pick-up filled holds via our curbside service.
The hours of operation for curbside are Monday – Thursday from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.; due to the time it takes to check out and fill the hold, we will stop taking calls after 5:40 pm.
Patrons can place holds through our online catalog or by calling 313-381-0374 during the hours listed above.
How does Curbside Pick Up work?
First, place items on hold through our catalog. Select Lincoln Park Public Library as your desired pickup Library. You will be notified by phone, text or email when your item is ready for pick-up. Call 313-381-0374 a half hour before you plan to arrive. Items must be picked up the same day service is requested. When you arrive to pick up your holds, pull into the Library Parking Lot. Call 313-381-0374 to let them know you have arrived and pop your trunk so staff can place the items in the trunk. A vehicle is not required to use this service.
Can I place holds over the phone?
Beginning June 15th, patrons can call 313-381-0374 to request items be placed on hold through their accounts during curbside hours.
Can I make a payment on my account?
In-person payments for lost or damaged items will not be available at this time. Patrons can make payments through our website.
What if I need to renew my card or don’t have a card?
Library card expiration dates has been moved forward to at least September. If you do not have a library card, you can apply for one by calling 313-381-0374.
How do I pay for dvd rentals?
While the library is providing curbside delivery services, all dvd rentals will be free of charge. Patrons are limited to five dvds checked out at one time per card. The library has many new dvd titles coming in, so please check out the library catalog to see what is available: https://catalog.tln.lib.mi.us/?section=home&config=lipk
