    • View/Download Written Instructions on finding MHPL items.
    • Video (YouTube) tutorial on right. More LINKcat tutorials here. If the resolution is low, change your settings by clicking on the little gearbox settings icon in the lower right part of video screen. 
      • We can only provide items that are currently in our library because delivery service and returns are not safely possible. Not able to use LINKcat or looking for special items such as Lucky Day DVDs or Board Games? Library staff will gladly order items for you. Please call or email us. 
      • Already have holds waiting that you received notification about before we closed? You can schedule a pick up time!
  2. When you receive a notification:

    • C​all 437-5021 or email to schedule a time to pick up your items. 
      Staff will schedule a time with you and guide you through the drive up process.

  3. Use the Drive Up Window and pick up your items.

    • Pick Ups will be scheduled
      •  Monday - Thursday, 11:00am-6:50pm. 
      • Friday, 11:00am-4:50pm
    • In order to limit contact, we encourage one person pick up the entire family's holds at one time.
    • Order as many items as you'd like! Unlimited pick up. 

Due Dates have been extended.

  • Materials checked out via Drive Up show a due date of June 1, but this will be extended. We are working with our library system to update this. You will not receive overdue fines in the month of June. 
  • Due dates for items checked out before our building closed have been extended to July 1, 2020. 

Do not use our Drive Up Window to return materials of any kind. This is essential to ensure safe handling of materials.  If you'd like to return materials, please visit our Returns page. 

To ensure social distancing measures our library will be operating with extremely limited staff. As you might imagine, we have lengthy request lists and it might take a little longer to receive the holds you place. We appreciate your patience with this.
