The following libraries are participating:
Curbside Pickup is available Monday through Friday, 8am to 10am. Saturday hours (8am to 10am) are also available at Queen Creek, Northwest Regional and Southeast Regional libraries.
Curbside Pickup is available for current physical library card holders whose account is in good standing. If you have a balance due, you must pay this before you can pick up any held items. For the safety of our staff, we will not be able to process payments at curbside and you will be asked to pay your balance separately from the curbside service. Curbside Pickup is not currently available for Digital Card Holders.
Anyone may pick up your items, but they must present your library card or have your library card number in order to pick up your items. Staff will not release items to those without a library card number.
You can reserve most titles online or over the phone. Requests are limited to 20 items per customer at a time. There is no fee for this service. Once your hold is available, you will be notified. You will have 7 days to pick up your item(s). After 7 days, your item(s) will be placed back on the shelves. At this time, those with Digital Library Cards cannot request items for Curbside Pickup. Digital cardholders only have access to our eMedia items and electronic resources.
Please call 602-652-3000 and ask to be connected with staff at your library.
You may renew your items online or over the phone. To renew online, login to your account. You may renew items if no one else has requested them, and if the renewal limit has not been reached.
You may only return items via the drive-up/walk-up drop boxes, which have 24 hour access. All items are placed in quarantine for 72 hours before being placed back on shelves. Please allow 72 hours before your account will show your items as returned.
In order to ensure the safety of our staff and customers, we are placing all returned items into quarantine for 72 hours before checking those items in. Your items should be marked returned shortly after that time period.
All staff members are required to wear gloves, a face mask and will practice social distancing from other staff members and members of the public during the curbside service. All items checked back into MCLD during this time are placed in a 72-hour quarantine before being placed back on shelves.
We are offering walk-up service for the following libraries: Aguila, Asante, El Mirage, Fairway, Gila Bend, Guadalupe, Hollyhock, Litchfield Park, and Sun City.
All library cards must be renewed every year. If your home/business/property address hasn’t changed when it’s time to renew, and you don’t owe more than $10 in fees, you can renew online.
Yes. Our outside book drop boxes will remain open. Library staff will check in any items put in outside book drops. All books are placed in quarantine for 72 hours before being placed back on shelves.
