Reporting is finally here! Thank you for your patience and understanding while we’ve adapted the plan.

Congratulations to those who have already finished, and best of luck to those who are still working toward their goal! Remember that for 2020, you need to have read 40 books (20 for teens) to complete the challenge.
Due to the current climate and our priority of keeping our community safe, we have moved to a “no contact” reporting system for 2020.
Beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 10, you may fill out a form to complete the challenge.

TPL To Go
Holds Pickup Service
TPL To Go holds pickup is now available at all libraries.
You will receive an email notification with instructions when your holds are ready. Please check your junk mail folder. The library recently changed email systems, and your messages may be mistakenly flagged as spam.
When you arrive at the library, please call the phone number posted outside the building to speak with a staff member about picking up your holds. If you do not have a phone and have holds to pick up, please approach the front doors of the library and be prepared to present your library card or ID or hold notice to staff.
A library staff member will gather your holds, place them in a bag, and motion for you to socially distance yourself so they can safely place them on the table outside the doors for you to retrieve.
If you are picking up holds on behalf of someone else, please have their library card number ready to present to library staff.
We are actively filling a backlog of more than 55,000 hold requests
Holds are filled a variety of ways! You may receive your holds in multiple shipments, and you may receive them in an order different than the order they were requested
Please help us provide faster service by logging into your account online or through the app and canceling holds that are no longer of interest. Your PIN number may be the last four of your phone number.
