Contactless Curbside Pickup

We are offering Contactless Curbside Pickup at all three library locations! How it works:

  1. Place your holds online (rdpl.bibliocommons.com) or by phone (403-346-4576).
  2. Wait for pick up notices via email or phone.
  3. Pick up holds at your selected branch.
  4. When you arrive to pick up your holds, call 403-346-4576 and the extension for the branch you are visiting (Downtown: press 1; Dawe: press 2; Timberlands: press 3).
    Note: These phone numbers are also available on the door to the library. If you do not have a phone, you can ring the doorbell and staff will come to the door to take your information. If possible, please have your library card number available as it makes for a smoother checkout process. 

You can also pick up our popular Kits to Go via Contactless pickup! Call ahead to ensure that the kit you are hoping to pick up is still available at your branch of choice.
