St. Charles Public Library Open for Holds Pickup Service

Pickup service has begun at St. Charles Public Library’s temporary location at the former Haines school building on Ninth Street.

The St. Charles Public Library has announced it has begun Holds Pickup Service.

This service is available to library cardholders who have materials on hold. Items can be placed on hold through the online catalog, by phone, email or chat. Once ready, patrons will be notified to schedule an appointment to pick up those items, contact-free, in the vestibule of their new location.

The hours for pickup service are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Same-day service is not available at this time.

The St. Charles Public Library is located temporarily at 305 S. Ninth St. in St. Charles.

According to a St. Charles Public Library news release, returned materials will be placed in quarantine for seven days before they can be checked in and recirculated. Library fines will be waived during this time.

Library Director Edith G. Craig said the library continues to prioritize the safety and health of staff and patrons during this process. Materials can be returned in book drops located in the vestibule and outside of the main library entrance at the 304 S. Ninth St. location.

“The St. Charles Public Library is thrilled to be able to provide this service to our patrons. This is an important first step as we begin our return to full service. We thank the community for their patience and understanding as we follow the guidelines provided by the CDC and Illinois Department of Health to keep our staff and patrons safe.”
