Contactless Pickup

We’re here for you while the library building is closed. Reserve up to 10 items for contactless pickup.

The Contactless Checkout Process

  • Place holds through our library catalog or call the library between 10AM and 4PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You may reserve up to 10 items.*
  • Library staff will contact you to arrange pickup time. (Please allow at least 48 hours for staff to contact you.)
  • Bring your ID and library card to the lower level entrance at your pickup time.
  • Pick up your books!
*Only items from the Ida Public Library collection can be reserved and checked out. We are unable to loan books from other PrairieCat consortium libraries at this time.

Returning Materials

When it’s time to return your books, please use the book drop. Staff cannot accept items from patrons.

Returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours, so don’t be alarmed if they are not checked in right away. When materials are checked in, they will be backdated, so no fines will accrue.

Safety is Important to Us
