Curbside Pickup Service at the Library

The library will continue to offer curbside pickup for patrons. The staff will fill your holds placed as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

At the moment, van delivery amongst the libraries is running on a very limited basis. You can search the catalog for Rome items at https://www.romepubliclibrary.org/. Please make sure you pick Lester Library of Rome as your “home” library. 

  • Pickups MUST be scheduled.

  • No library staff/patron face to face interaction.

  • Requests can be made by accessing LinkCat, phone or email at rdaley@romepubliclibrary.org

  • A maximum number of 3 items may be checked out on each library card. This may change in the future.

Scheduling
Please call the library at 715-325-8990 to schedule a pickup. We will be taking calls Monday through Friday from 9am-3pm.

Pickup Times
Pickup times will be scheduled every 15 minutes. If you miss your scheduled pickup time, your items will be removed from your account and returned to the shelf. Materials will be checked out to the patron account prior to pickup. At your scheduled time, patrons will pick up their items on a table located by the bookdrop entrance. Weather will play a factor in offering curbside pickup. If it is raining or inclement weather, we will suspend the service.

Outside Bookdrop is Open
The outside library bookdrop is open for patrons to return materials. When returning, please do not rubber band or bag items, this may cause them to get stuck. The inside bookdrop is CLOSED and we will not accept any returns inside of the library. Please note we are NOT accepting donations at this time.
