While all Peoria Public Library locations remain closed to the public due to COVID-19, the library is starting limited curbside pickup at three locations – Main Library, Lakeview Branch and North Branch.

Staff will not be able to process InterLibrary Loans or holds on books that we don’t own and have in house. We are also limiting phone calls to holds of up to five items so we don’t tie up phone lines. Please understand we want to be able to serve as many patrons as possible.

Curbside Pickup Details

· Call in to place up to five holds on items per household. Calls will be answered between 9-11 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Online holds can be placed anytime.

· Call the branch you wish to pick up from:

      Main Library – 497-2000

      Lakeview Branch – 497-2200

      North Branch – 497-2100

· Patrons will be called when their order is ready to pick up. Staff will place items in vehicle trunks, preferably, or through backseat car windows. Staff will not take returning items from the public. All returning items must go in book drops.

FOR TEMPORARY CARD HOLDERS
Temporary card holders who live within Peoria city limits will be able to check out two items on a temporary card. We will then mail you a confirming postcard, which you will need to keep and show to a librarian as proof of residency. Call 497-2000 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday or Friday to set up an appointment to show your card. Once we have established you are a Peoria resident, we will change your status and you will be able to fully participate in curbside pickup.
