PLEASE NOTE:

  • When searching our catalog online, make sure you select “Pine River Library Collection.” Until our courier service is running again, we will only be checking out items we have on our shelves. You can also click on “Available Now” and you’ll only see items that are on our shelves and available for you to check out right away! Watch the quick video tutorial Digital Services Manager Liz vonTauffkirchen created on how to find available items and place holds on them through the catalog.
  • Have existing holds that were coming from another library in our system? Liz has also created a tutorial to show you how move those items to a “list” on your account so you can free up space for making holds on items currently available on our shelves.
  • Staff will reach out to you within 72 hours of your request with information about the availability of your requested items and to schedule a pick up.

PRINTING 
We are also offering curbside pickup for your print jobs. Please email the documents you want printed to pod@pribrary.org and we will print them when you arrive at the library.

LAPTOPS
Need to use a computer for a few hours? We are also offering Chromebook lending in our parking lot. These basic laptops can be used to access the Internet through our free WiFi signal.

KIDS’ CRAFT KITS
Looking for fun activities for your kids? Along with curbside materials, PRL Children’s Services will also be distributing simple “Take & Make” craft kits for kids. These are super simple little activities that are designed to be pretty self-explanatory. They aren’t fancy, but we do hope they bring a little bit of joy and creativity from the library into kids’ days. When we confirm your materials requests by phone, be sure to let us know if you’d like us to include Take & Make kits for your children in your pick up bundle.
