COVID-19 CURBSIDE PICKUP

Due to increases in COVID-19 cases in our area, the library building will be closed starting Nov. 13th. Library staff is still in the building and more than happy to assist you with all of your curbside needs, including printing and faxing.

If you would like to do a curbside pickup, please call us at (715) 749-3849 to schedule a time.

If you have items you would like to place on hold you can do so in one of two ways: through our online catalog (instructions below) or by giving us a call at the number listed above. Courier between libraries is still running, so you are still able to place holds on items belonging to other libraries in our system.

We are closing the building and doing curbside pickup only in an effort to protect patrons and staff, and keep the library open and offering services. 

The outside library drop box is open.

You do not need to schedule to drop off items in our drop box.

At the end of each day, the drop box will be emptied and quarantined for three days.  After the quarantine, we will then check the items in.  That means that those items will still be on your account for the three days (longer including the weekends) before they get checked in. 

How to:

To put materials on hold please follow these directions:

Go to the MORE Catalog: more.lib.wi.us

Enter a search term (remember, “movies” and “books” are valid keyword search terms)

Select the “Available Now” filter on the left side to expand it

Select the pickup library

Search results will be limited to titles available and holdable at the pickup library

Tip: to exclude ebooks and audiobooks, open the “Titles I can…” filter and select “Borrow and take home”

Select “Place a Hold” and verify your pickup library

Tip: Turn on “Active Filters” so subsequent searches retain limits

If you aren’t able to put items on hold online, please call the library starting next week (April 27th, after 10 am) at 715-749-3849.  The library staff will take your list, but will not be able to tell you if items are available at that time.

You may also email the library, hmcl@robertspubliclibrary.org with your requests.  That does not guarantee that we will have what you want at our library at this time, but we will try to do our best!! 

The library staff will call you when you have items ready for pick up.  If we don’t have any of the items you requested, you will NOT receive a call. We will need to assign pickup times so please try to answer our call.  It will not be an automated call, but one of your friendly library staff.  Staff on the call may not be able to tell you if we have everything you requested.

When you arrive to the library for your scheduled Non-Contact Curbside pickup, please drive up with the passenger side of your vehicle to the community room windows with a large piece of paper listing your name and birth date.  Stay in your car, staff will bring out the bag of materials to you and put into your empty passenger side window or pop the trunk of your vehicle.
