Curbside Pick-Up FAQs

Since browsing inside the library is unavailable right now, it can be difficult to figure out what you’d like to borrow. Here are a couple ways you can select your library materials during Curbside Pick-Up:⁠

  • Search our Online Catalog – Searching the catalog will tell you what items we have, what ORLA location they belong to, & whether they are currently available. If you see an item you’d like, you can place a hold on it or call the library.
  • Call the Library – Can’t search our catalog? No problem! Give your local branch a call & we’ll be happy to help you find items you’re looking for. If you’re unsure of what you want, we can even give you some recommendations based on what you like to read or watch!⁠

Not sure where to begin when it comes to scheduling a Pick-Up? Here are a couple ways you can schedule a Curbside Pick-Up:⁠

  • Place Holds on the Online Catalog – Once you’re logged in* to your online account, you have the ability to place holds on items you’d like to check out. When your item is available, you’ll receive an email or text prompting you to call the library to schedule a pick-up, OR the library will call YOU to schedule a pick-up (depending on your notification settings). *When logging in to your account, your PIN is usually set to the last 4 digits of the phone number you provided us with!
  • Call the Library – Can’t log in to your account? No problem! Give your local branch a call & we’ll be happy to help you find items you’re looking for. If you’re unsure of what you want, we can even give you some recommendations based on what you like to read or watch! We’ll place the items on hold for you & schedule a pick-up when your items are ready.

Did you know you can still receive printing, faxing, copying, and scanning services curbside? Here’s how:⁠

  • Printing – You can email your prints to print@oilregionlibraries.org & call the library. We’ll confirm that we received your prints & schedule a time with you to pick them up. ⁠
  • Faxing, Copying, & Scanning – Call the library to let us know which service you’ll need. We’ll schedule a time with you to come by. A staff member will meet you at you car & pick up your documents to complete the service for you inside of the building.⁠
