What else do I need to know?

How do I pick up or return an item?

When your item’s status appears as “ready for pickup”, you will receive a notification. Your item will then be checked out to you and delivered to your school, usually within 1-2 business days.

To find out where to pick up and return items at your school, contact your school office, your school library, or the Westerville Public Library. If you do not pick up your item within 7 days, it will be returned to the library and checked in. Note: This will be extended to 14 days while schools are using teams for Coronavirus prevention.

Why wasn't my item delivered?

In the following instances, items will not be delivered to your school upon request.

  • Your library account has a fine over $10. (This block will be removed when your fines are paid down to $10 or less. Items that were not delivered will be set aside for you until the block is removed or the hold expires.)
  • You applied for a library card online, but you have not yet come in to the library with your parent or guardian to be issued your physical card.
  • You returned an item without all of its pieces.

I'm a parent. Can I pick up items for myself from my child's school?

Parents and guardians, you can request items for school delivery using a library card issued in your child's name. Your child must then be the one to pick up your item from the school's designated area.
