How It Works:

1) Place Your Holds

 

Log into your account here. Search for titles you wish to check out, click on the desired item's title, and then click “Reserve." Watch this video for step-by-step instructions.  You may also call the Anamosa Library & Learning Center for personal assistance in reserving items at (319) 462-2183.

2) Receive Holds Ready Notification 

 

We will email or call when your holds are available for pickup to schedule a pickup time and day. Pickup times will be scheduled every 15 minutes during library curbside pickup hours.

3) Arrive at Pickup Time

Enter the library’s parking lot at your scheduled pickup time. Library staff will have placed your items in our curbside bin (found on one of the limestone blocks outside the library's front doors).  You may approach the bin and pick up your items.

If you need things copied or faxed, please place the papers you need copied/faxed inside the bin at the arranged time, along with exact change and instructions for staff.  Black & white copies are $0.25 per printed side, color copies are $0.50 per printed side, and faxes are $1 per page for outgoing faxes.

Print jobs can be emailed to a library staff member (rebecca.vernon@anamosa-ia.org) along with instructions.

4) Returning Items

Please return all materials to the library's 24/7 outside book drop.  This is located to the right of the library's front doors in a drive-through.  Returned items will not be accepted at curbside pickup.
