Curbside Delivery at White Lake Library Starts Monday, November 16

Beginning Monday, November 16, the library building will close to the public. You will still be able to place and pick up holds, but staff will bring them to your car for contactless service.    

The drive-up book return is OPEN for returns. Items will remain on your account for at least 4 days as they will be quarantined before discharge. Donations of books cannot be accepted at this time.

Due to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases in the area, the Library is prioritizing the health and safety of patrons and staff by temporarily closing in-person library service to help mitigate the spread of the virus in the community.  Thank you for your continued support in helping us stay safe to stay open.

For curbside service:

 How do I request materials for pickup?

  1. Go online, search the catalog and place holds as usual. 
  2. Call the library at (248) 698-4942 and ask a librarian to help you to place holds. 
  3. You can also contact us online from our website, whitelakelibrary.org.

Note: You will need the same valid library card to order and pick up materials.

How do I know my holds are ready?

 You will be notified via phone, email or text – the same way that you were informed in the past. 

How do I pick up my items?

  1. After you are notified that your items are available:
  2. Please call the library (248) 672-4445 and schedule a pickup time.   
  3. Come to the library, return any items you still have at home in the drive-up book drop. 
  4. Park in one of the designated curbside delivery parking spaces.
  5. Call the phone number on the sign.  A staff member will ask for your name, library card number and your parking space number. 
  6. 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.
  7. 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 delivery 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.  

Be well and take care, 

The Staff of the White Lake Township Library.
