Oshkosh Public Library offers curbside pickup services

Oshkosh Public Library is providing contactless, curbside pickup of materials by appointment only. To maintain social distancing, staff cannot accept in-person returns. Please return materials to the book drops on Mount Vernon Street.

Here's how it works:

  • 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.
  • The library will schedule a time for pickup. We’ll call you when your items are ready. Please do not arrive for a pickup without an appointment. If you have questions about your appointment or need to reschedule, please call 236-5203. Thank you for your patience.
  • 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.

Reading recommendations for adults are available here.

Wait times may be longer than usual, and you may occasionally receive a busy signal when calling to request materials. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Note: If you are sick, please stay home and call the library to adjust your appointment as needed. Do not come to the library to pick up your materials.
