Press ReleaseOn Shelf Library Materials Now Available

The Iowa City Public Library is now offering curbside pickup and mail delivery of available library materials.

Library cardholders interested in an item can place a hold in our catalog. Allow up to two business days for staff to pull the item from the shelf. Once the hold is ready, patrons will receive an email or phone notification asking for their delivery preference: curbside or mail. If curbside is chosen, the patron will be prompted to schedule an appointment for pickup.

Curbside pickup appointments are available Mondays through Fridays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Library materials are also available for free delivery through US Mail. Packages are mailed Monday through Friday. Please allow 3-10 business days to receive your items through the mail.

For more information, go to or call the Library between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at 319-356-5200.
