Curbside Pickup

Using curbside pickup at Allen Public Library in four easy steps:

Step 1: Log in to your Allen Public Library account and reserve your materials using our online catalog.

Step 2: Wait for a notification from the Library that your materials are ready for pickup.  The notification will  be by phone call, text, or email depending on how you chose to be notified.  Reserved items must be claimed with in 7 days.

Step 3:  Once you have received the notification, call the library to schedule a time to pick up your materials. Please have your library card number ready when you call. 

Step 4:  Go to the curbside pickup location.  This is located in the front of the library on Allen Drive - just look for the curbside signs.  Our staff will be watching for your vehicle and will bring your items out when you arrive.
