Library Curbside

Julia Hull District Library is happy to offer curbside pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., by appointment only. Patrons place holds on items in Encore (the library’s online catalog). Alternately, library staff will be available limited hours, Monday-Friday if you’d like to say “hi” and ask staff to help you select materials. We’re here to help: call 815-645-8611.

Please note: Wait times for holds placed online may take longer than usual for pick up as we have a large backlog while items are in quarantine.

How does curbside pick-up by appointment work? If a JH Library patron has an item on hold: 1. Library staff will notify patrons by email or phone that their item on hold is available for pickup. 2. Upon notification, patron will schedule a pickup time. 3. At the agreed upon time, patron will call the library and library staff will provide instructions re: pickup. Items will be checked-out to patrons in advance and staged in a bag for your convenience.
