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!

Selecting Materials:

  • 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 https://librarycatalog.einetwork.net/

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.)

How to Place a Request:

  • For the quickest option, please request via this online form:  https://forms.gle/yrhevAcBermM98No8

  • If you are unable to use the form, you may call us with your requests at 412-486-0211.

  • Give us at least 24-48 hours to pull items and we will notify you (call or email) when they are ready to be picked up.

  • We check out items to your account for three weeks.

Picking Up Your Request:

Hours for pickup:
Monday-Thursday 10am to 7pm
Friday & Saturday 10am to 5pm

  • Park in the back lot.

  • Open your trunk or back seat. Please stay in your vehicle.

  • Call us at 412-486-0211 and tell us your name and the make/color of your vehicle.

  • We will deliver clean/bagged items to your trunk or an unoccupied back seat.

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.

  • Items are quarantined for 72 hours.

  • Donations may also be placed in the smaller, labeled bin.

Thank you so much for your patience and kindness.
