LIBRARY 2-GO-GO

Our Curbside Pick-up Service

The Barbara Moscato Brown Memorial Library is committed to providing patrons expanded access to online resources and safe access to physical materials through a limited curbside pickup service, “Library 2-Go-Go”!

Since our library building will remain closed, patrons can still access our wifi signal from the safety of their vehicles in our back parking lot. The login information will be posted on the back door of the library for all patrons to access the wifi.

We will also be providing Early Reader 3-book bundles for our youngest patrons (5 and under). Parents can choose from the following bundles: Grab Bag (assorted books picked by librarian), Animals/Nature, Early Learning (colors, shapes, letters, etc), or Funny/Silly.

We will also continue to expand our online and contact free activities and resources for adults and children.

How to Reserve Your Items

  • STEP 1:
    Place your items on hold by calling the library at 814-486-8011 or reserving an item through our Online Catalog. Once in the Online Catalog, click “My Account” at the top left to login, enter your patron number exactly as it appears on your card (including spaces if necessary). The default password is 1234, but patrons can customize their password if they choose after initial login.

    Once logged in, go to “Browse” and enter the title or author you want in the search bar, when your desired book pops up click the green “reserve” button on the right. You will be notified via phone when your hold is ready.
  • STEP 2:
    Wait for our call! A librarian will call you once your materials are ready for pickup and assign you a time slot and pickup code. If you are not available to pick up your items during your assigned time slot, please let the librarian know and another time slot will be assigned to you.
  • STEP 3:
    Pick up your items and enjoy your books! Bagged holds will be on a cart in the front foyer of the building for contact-free pickup. Your bag will be labeled with your hold pickup code (your first name and last two numbers of your library card).

FOR YOUR SAFETY, PLEASE LIMIT ONE PATRON IN FOYER AT A TIME.

Important Information & Returns

Pickup orders will be limited to 5 ITEMS PER PICKUP ORDER at this time. If you do not know the specific titles you would like, your order will be limited to 3 items. Same-day pickup will not be possible with this system as we navigate the best way to fill all requests, we ask patrons to allow AT LEAST 2-3 days for processing, and we thank you in advance for your patience.

The Library book return will be open and a bin for returns will be provided in the foyer area. For the health and safety of our staff and patrons, please refrain from handing returns directly to staff when picking up your orders. Please make sure to place returns ONLY in the BIN and not on the PICKUP CART.

Remember, the Barbara Moscato Brown Memorial Library building remains closed to the public and patrons will not be allowed to enter for any reason. Lobbies, restrooms, computers, and other spaces will not be accessible.

For Our Disabled or High Risk Patrons

If you are disabled or high risk and need your order delivered to your car, please tell the librarian when you are notified about your pickup slot and you will be given a specific arrival time. Upon arrival, call the library, or if needed, honk your horn, to alert us to your arrival and pop your trunk. Staff will place your order in the trunk of your vehicle.
