Procedures for BCL To Go:

  1. Make an appointment. Appointment windows are 30 minutes long. Use the schedule button above to make your own appointment or call 503-644-2197 during Ask the Library phone hours. We will need at least 48 hours if you are picking up more items that are in held status. Please make an appointment at the location where your items are held.
    Or drop in - Come to the library during BCL To Go hours (listed above). Please note: The first 30 minutes is usually the busiest, and it takes a bit longer to get holds ready without an appointment.
  2. Please wear a mask when picking up items. Staff will be wearing masks for your protection.
  3. When you arrive:
    If you're driving up (Main only), park near the cone and table (parallel parking spots off of Hall Blvd), call the number on the sign, and tell staff your name. You may have your materials put in your car trunk or on the table nearby. (If you choose trunk, please open your trunk and remain in the vehicle. Staff will place your items in your trunk, close the trunk, and walk back to the building.)
    If you're walking/biking up (Main & Murray Scholls), approach the staff member at the table at Murray Scholls or follow the instructions on the signs at Main. If you have not made an appointment, present your library card or ID. If you have made an appointment, tell the staff member your name. Physical distance must be maintained; if there is a line, please leave 6' of space between yourself and others. Staff will bring out your items and set them on the table. Please wait until staff have moved away from the table before approaching the table to get your items.

    The items will already be checked out to you and you are ready to go!

Returns are being accepted at the book drop at both library locations. We will not be accepting returns at BCL To Go at Main (on the Hall Blvd side of the building).
