Curbside Holds Pickup

Curbside Service Has Ended

Ames Public Library currently offers holds pickup and “grab and go” services in the Library’s lobby.

While the lobby is open, visitors may check out their holds, Grab & Go bags, Quick Picks, and other items on display in the lobby. Visitors may also pick up @Home Activity Kits and tax forms (as they become available).

Computers are available for use in the Library’s Auditorium during lobby hours. Due to the need for distancing, computer sessions will be limited.

The Library staff and Board of Trustees are dedicated to offering Library services while minimizing the risk for spreading COVID-19. Visitors must wear masks covering their nose and mouth and maintain 6 feet of distance from staff and other visitors. Visits should remain short and interactions with staff and other visitors should be minimized.

Library users in need of special accommodations may contact the Library at (515) 239-5646 extension 2 for assistance.

Ames Public Library’s staff and Board of Trustees will continue to monitor the situation and collaborate with City officials and health experts to adapt Library services as needed.
