Holds Pickup Lockers Coming February 2021
Coming soon to the Nimishillen #1 Fire Station on Broadway Avenue: Holds Pickup Lockers! When cardholders place holds on items, you can choose to have them sent to the holds lockers instead of the Library building. Once we've notified you that your holds are available, pick up your holds any time, day or night. The kiosk is completely automated, and will be available 24/7 in the lobby of the fire station. A book drop for returning Library books, DVDs, and other items will also be available at the fire station. You must have your Library barcode, memorized, on your physical card or on the SEO Libraries app, to retrieve your holds from the lockers. Special thanks to the Nimishillen Township Trustees and the Friends of the Louisville Public Library for their donation and help on this project.
Programming videos premiere on Facebook for a day, then are available on our YouTube channel for 10 days!
