County Libraries Return to Curbside Service Only

    Patron and Staff Safety is Top Priority for Library District
    Location: Yavapai County
    Balancing Safety and Service
    All 15 Yavapai County Free Library District branches* will return to curbside-only service beginning this Thursday, August 5th. Curbside pickup will be available during normal open hours. Masks will be required for staff and patrons are encouraged to wear a mask when interacting.
    These safety measures come from an abundance of caution and to be consistent with countywide recommendations. We appreciate our patrons’ patience and understanding. For questions, please visit or call your local branch library for updates.
    To use curbside pickup:

    1. Visit to browse or search the library catalog. [Don’t have internet at home or not sure what you want? Call your library staff and ask them to pick something out for you!]
    2. Place hold[s] through the online catalog [Call/email your branch library if you would like help placing your holds].
    3. When your items arrive at the library, you will be notified.
    4. Come to the library during open hours. If you have a cell phone, call the branch
      phone number when you arrive to pick up your items. If you don’t, call from home
      and arrange a time for pickup.
    5. Open your trunk and stay in the vehicle.
    6. Library staff will bring your items out and put them in the trunk after verifying your
      identity. We take your privacy and the security of your account seriously and want to make sure everyone gets their own items.
