Step 1 : Place holds on the items you want.

(Please note that items from other libraries are taking longer to arrive.)

Step 2: Once you receive your automatic Hold Pick-Up Notice letting you know that your items are ready for pickup, schedule a pickup time during Curbside Pickup Hours by calling the library at 715-234-4861.

Step 3: When you're at the library for your scheduled pickup, call us to let us know.

After you've called, you can then retrieve your items waiting inside the front doors.

Please note that our phone lines may be busy, but leave a message and we'll call back as soon as we are able.

How to Place Holds

There's multiple ways to place holds!

You can still place holds within the MORE library catalog, but as our delivery system is slower than normal and items are being quarantined for 24 hours for patron safety, it may take weeks before your items arrive. We greatly appreciate your patience and are happy to recommend titles available at Rice Lake while you wait.

Returning Items

Our Marshall Street book drop is now open 24/7 !

Items are quarantined 24 hours before they are checked in and returned to the collection. This will not make them late returns, as we will backdate everything. Remember that items checked out at Rice Lake are overdue fine free!
