Curbside Pickup

How to curbside

Stay safe and get the library materials you’ve been waiting for with curbside pickup.

Curbside pickup is located at the Park Branch Library, at Mission St and 6th Ave.

How does Curbside Pickup work?

1. Put your items on hold

 Log into the library catalog with your library card and password.

Select the item you want and click “Place hold,” then “Confirm hold.”

You can also call us at 831-624-4629 or email us at hml.reference@gmail.com and we will place holds for you.

2. Wait for your confirmation email

When your holds are ready, you’ll get an email with a link to our pickup scheduling form.

3. Schedule your pickup date

Now you get to choose your pickup date!

Open your confirmation email, and click the link to schedule your pickup date. Please fill out the scheduling form within 5 days, or your holds will expire from your account.

4. Come pick up your items

On your scheduled pickup day, come to the lobby of the Park Branch Library at the corner of Mission St and 6th Ave, between 10am and 4pm.

Your holds will be in a bag marked with the first 3 letters of your last name and the last 4 digits of your library card number, and they will already be checked out to your account.
