Hold Pickup

Place your items on hold online through your library account, by calling 830-221-4300, or by texting 830-253-4804.

Once you've received your notification that your hold is ready, pull up in front of the library and call 830-221-4300 to let us know you're here. A staff member will bring your items to a table on the porch. Once the staff member has returned inside, you may pick up your items from the table.

A Note about Library Materials: The library is quarantining all returned materials for 72 hours as part of the best practices for disinfecting collection items. For more information about cleaning items, visit our guide to home cleaning.
