Curbside Delivery still available


Just a reminder that we are open to the public and encouraging masks for patrons, but if you feel more comfortable using our curbside pick-up option, that is still available. Place items on hold either online or by calling in. They will be ready the next day. Pull in to a designated curbside parking spot and call one of the 2 numbers listed, tell us your name and what spot you’re in and we will bring it right out to you. Thanks for your patience!

We are still offering curbside service. We ask that all items continue to be returned through our book and video drop boxes.

Computer, copies, and other office-like services are not available at this point.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and willingness to allow a safe reopening for our patrons and staff. We look forward to seeing you!

Curbside delivery starting Tuesday, May 26th!

Information for our curbside service starting Tuesday, May 26. 

We are excited to be able to serve you again soon. We appreciate your patience as we follow guidelines to phase our reopening. We wanted to let you know how our curbside service will work. This will be in effect until further notice. At this time, the library will not be open for other library services. Thank you for understanding.

  1. Go to our website at www.aflibrary.org and click on the KOHA icon. Log in using your library card number and PIN. If you don’t know your PIN, call the library and we will assist you.  You can then place items on hold. Or call the library starting May 26 at 208-226-2335. Holds will be ready the next day if we receive your requests by 3:00 pm.
  2.  To pick up your check-outs, simply pull in to a designated curbside parking spot and call a number that will be posted. This number will be different from our library phone number. We will promptly bring your bagged and checked-out books to you. Your order will include your check-outs slip with the date they will be due. Any returns need to be dropped off using the book drop as we will be following our sanitizing procedures.

Please comment with any questions. We appreciate our amazing patrons!
