Curbside Pickup and In-Person Visits by Appointment Continues through May 24
Summit County Library is open by appointment only.
Until we are in Level Green in Summit County, we encourage you to use our curbside pickup service. It takes three easy steps.
1. Place a HOLD on your item via the online library catalog. You will be notified by email or text when the item is available for pickup. This may take a few days.
2. From the parking lot, call the library front desk and give your Summit County Library card number.
3. Library staff will check out your items and bring your books/DVDS/magazines to the outside pickup point for you to grab.
If you must come into a library to print, copy, or browse the stacks, we will now offer 45 minute appointments at the top of each hour. Please call your local library in advance to schedule an appointment and be let in to the building. You can schedule one appointment a day, up to one day in advance.
