After being closed to the public for two months, Phoenix Public Library will launch curbside service on Monday. It will be available at 16 Phoenix library locations Monday through Saturday between 8 and 10 a.m. 

Customers need to reserve material online or by calling 602-262-4636 Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They’ll be notified when their order is ready. When customers arrive at the library, they stay in their car, call a posted phone number and provide their library card number. Employees will place the items in their trunk or rear of their vehicle.

If customers want someone else to pick up their items, they need to provide their library card account number to staff who pull the order.

Phoenix’s curbside service is the same model the Maricopa County Public Library District has been using at 16 locations since April 22. The cities of Maricopa, Flagstaff and Apache Junction have also been offering curbside or drive-up service.
