Oshkosh Public Library offers curbside pickup services

Oshkosh Public Library is providing contactless, curbside pickup of materials by appointment. To maintain social distancing, staff cannot accept in-person returns. Please return materials to the book drop on Mount Vernon Street. Due dates on all library materials have been extended to June 1.

Curbside Pickup

  • Place your holds. Call 236-5205 to request materials (limit five items to keep phone calls short), or place holds through the catalog (standard limits apply). Phones are staffed during regular business hours.
  • Schedule a time for pickup. We’ll give you a call when your items are ready. Arrange an appointment for pickup at that time.
  • Follow the signs. Drive to your assigned pickup stall and call the number on the sign to let us know you’ve arrived. Alternate arrangements will be made if you don’t have a vehicle or cell phone.
  • Collect your items. A staff member will bring out a cart with your checked-out materials and place it in front of your stall. You also have the option of opening your trunk for items to be placed inside. Please be sure to maintain social distancing.

Once books are returned, they will be quarantined for at least three days. Holds that were filled before the Safer at Home Order was issued will be the first to be available. Home Delivery and Interlibrary loan remain suspended at this time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we begin to provide services in a new way that is safe for everyone. Wait times may be longer than usual, and you may occasionally receive a busy signal when calling to request materials. We look forward to seeing you at a safe distance soon!

Note: If you are sick, please stay home. Do not come to the library to pick up your materials.

Under the Safer at Home Order, the building remains closed to the public.
