Anyone needing help finding materials should call 573-563-4113.

Once you have been contacted that items are available for pickup, patrons will have 2 operating days to pick up requested items. To keep the flow of traffic moving properly patrons should enter the library parking lot from the Nebraska Avenue entrance and pull up to the front doors facing the same way as traffic. Patrons will then need to cal 573-563-4113 to let staff know they are out front for a curbside pick up, and one of our friendly staff members will get their items out to you as quickly as possible. Patrons will not need to get out of their car unless they need to drop off books in the book drop. Staff will not be taking returns from patrons. The book drop is located to the right of the front doors.
