Concerned about coming into the library? We can bring your materials to your vehicle until mid-August!

Park and Pickup Service continues through mid-August.  We will deliver your materials right to your vehicle or to our front porch if you are coming via bus, bicycle, or on foot!

  • You may request specific titles or general materials on topics/genres of interest.

  • You may select adult, teen, or children’s materials. Large Print or AV.

  • Search for specific titles from the Shaler North Hills Library by going to

Note! We can only fill orders from materials currently in our building. For items that are out or we do not have, we will now place a traditional hold on that item for you. (We cannot give a timeframe when this hold might arrive. You’ll receive your usual email or phone call on these holds.)

Returning Materials:

To minimize contact and cross-contamination of materials that have already been quarantined, we are asking that if you have items to return, please put them in the OUTDOOR bins by our Book Drop yourself.
