CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE PICK-UP HAS ARRIVED AT OC PUBLIC LIBRARIES!

 The health and wellness of our OC Public Libraries’ staff and customers is our main concern.

Based on recommendations from the County of Orange and in concurrence with guidelines issued by the Governor of the state of California, all OC Public Library branches are closed to limit the number of people in a public building and to help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

Library patrons can now pick up their holds thanks to OC Public Libraries new contactless Curbside Pick-up service. This announcement follows the reopening of book drops on June 9 as OC Public Libraries continues to follow State and County guidelines.

Contactless Curbside Pick-Up is available Tuesday through Friday from 12-6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hours for contactless Curbside Pick-up vary at the Laguna Hills Technology library and Laguna Woods library. Please contact those locations directly for curbside service availability.

Library users who wish to pick-up new library books through contactless Curbside Pick-Up can do so in six easy steps:

  1. Place items on hold online at catalog.ocpl.org.
  2. After receiving notice via email or phone that the item is ready, drive to the library.
  3. Call the number on the sign upon arrival.
  4. Wait for staff to place items on the outside table and return inside.
  5. Once staff returns inside, retrieve the items.
  6. Enjoy your reading, and return items to the book drops when done!
