Book Retrieval – Public

Book Retrieval for Public Patrons

Only the first floor of the building is accessible to the public.  Books located on levels two, three, four, or five can be retrieved for patrons by a member of our staff; please ask for assistance at one of the service desks.  Some older books are stored in an off-site storage area. If a reference to such a book is found in the library catalog, please see an attendant at one of the service desks and ask for the book to be retrieved.  We will make every effort to retrieve materials located in our current building in a timely manner but cannot guarantee instant access.  Patrons needing materials located in offsite storage must complete a Book Retrieval Request Form. Most items should be retrievable within one Business Day of the request.  If you know ahead of time that you will need items from storage or an upper floor, please submit a Book Retrieval Form in advance and we can arrange to have them ready for your visit.
