You can place orders for books, movies, magazines, and more, and the library staff will provide safe contactless delivery of your items to your vehicle.
How do I request materials for pickup?
Go online, search the catalog, and place holds as usual.
Call the library at (248) 698-4942 and ask a librarian to help you to place holds.
You can also contact us online from our website, whitelakelibrary.org.
How do I know my holds are ready?
You will be notified via phone, email or text – or the same way that you requested to be informed in the past.
How do I pick up my items?
After you are notified that your items are available:
Please call the library (248) 698-4942 x 2 and schedule a pickup time.
Come to the library, return any items you still have at home in the drive-up book drop.
Park in one of the designated curbside delivery parking spaces.
Call the phone number on the sign. A staff member will ask for your name, library card number, and your parking space number, and ask you to drive up to the white tent at the front of the Library building.
Please remain in your vehicle so we can provide you with contactless delivery. Staff will maintain strict social distancing and cannot accept returns when making deliveries. Returns must go into the drive-up book drop for 72 hours of quarantine.
Staff will check out your items and bring them to your car. Open your trunk or backseat passenger side window or door, and we will place your items inside!
Curbside service is something we will do to keep you safe, while still providing access to the materials of your library. Reading is an important skill and treasured leisure activity. We at the While Lake Library are committed to getting those books and other materials into your hands in the safest way.
We look forward to seeing you!
Take care, stay safe, and be well!
