Library Book Curbside Service

Library users may request physical materials from our collection via the curbside book delivery service. To request materials, please email the library circulation desk (libcirc@emporia.edu) and specify in the subject line "curbside book request."

You can specify a date/time you'd like to pickup your materials or call us when you are at the curb (620-341-5205). We just ask for at least one hour's notice from the time of your request. You may pick up your materials between 8 AM - 5 PM, Monday-Friday. Thank you for using your library!
