Curbside Pickup

The library may be closed, but you can still check out materials!

Curbside service is available daily from 10am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday (except holidays).

  • Reserve materials (books, magazines, DVDs and more) at least 24 hours prior to pick-up online through the JCLC Encore Catalog or by calling 205.978.0155 ext. 2.

  • When you arrive at the library, stay in your vehicle and have your library card handy. Call 205.978.0155 ext. 2 – a staff member will complete your check-out and place your materials on the designated table under the portico. Once the staff member returns inside the building, you may exit your vehicle to pick up your materials.
  • The library reserves the right to cancel or limit curbside service.
