Expanded Services Starting
Monday, May 18th

Beginning Monday, May 18th, the Lakeland Public Libraries will be offering expanded services at our physical locations.  While we are not yet ready to have you in the building, we are going to be here for you with extended hours of operation, curbside access to materials, and walk up services.

Curbside Holds Pickup

Do you want quicker access to the items you have on hold? On Monday, May 18th, all Lakeland Libraries will be offering curbside hold pick up during the times designated below.  It's a quick and easy way to get your physical items.
  • Reserve your items online or over the phone. Choose Lakeland, the Jackson Branch or the eLibrary as your pick up location.
  • When the items are available you'll be notified via phone or text.  You will have 7 days to pick up your hold. 
  • Park in the designated curbside spots and call to let us know you're here and we will bring out your materials.
