Returns are accepted at the Main Library, Mt. Royal Branch Library, and West Duluth Branch Library
In this no-appointment process, please bring your library card and cell phone. If you do not have a cell phone, this is ok. There will be instructions outside of the library to help. Your full library card number will help ensure a quick and easy transaction! Please note that curbside pick-up is available for items that are currently held. Request items by placing holds on your account through our catalog, or by calling during readers advisory hours (see below.)
1. Pull up to one of the four designated spots near the Superior Street entrance of the library. Please do not block the bus stop. If you are coming by bus, on foot, or by bicycle, there are two designated spots (numbered 5 and 6) near the tables. If you do not have a cell phone, you can wait here for a staff member.
2. Follow the directions on the sign to let staff know you have arrived. Follow the link in your notification email, or text the number on the sign. This is not a telephone line. If you have questions, please call 218-730-4200 option 3.
3. Staff will communicate with you via text or message, check out your items, and deliver them to the table by the door.
4. Returns are accepted in both the Superior Street and Michigan Street book drops at the Main Library 24/7 and at both library branches!
