Pick-Up Holds and Printouts Using Curbside
Simply place holds on books, DVDs or any other library material by searching the catalog on the SLCL mobile app or at slcl.org. You will need your library card and PIN number. Choose any branch as the pick-up location. If you need help placing holds, please contact the library.
Once your holds are ready, you’ll receive an email notification with instructions for picking up the holds at your chosen branch.
