No-Contact Pickup

The library continues to offer no-contact pickup for library materials.



Monday – Thursday: 10-11 am and 3-4 pm
Sunday: 1-4 pm

How it works:

1. Request items from our catalog, selecting Albert Lea Public Library as the pickup location. You can request items from other libraries and through MNLink if we do not have the item in our system.

2. When you get the notice or phone call that your items are ready, call the library to schedule a pickup time.

Note: we will no longer call patrons when holds arrive unless you have specified phone notification on your account. 

3. At your scheduled time, pick up your items using the Clark Street parking lot. A staff member will verify your vehicle description and bring the items out to your vehicle. Please open your front or back window or trunk so staff can place your items in your vehicle. You no longer need to exit your vehicle to retrieve your items.
