Man Driving a Car.

Beginning Monday, June 29, Washington County Library branches will be open with limited capacity and reduced hours. Visitors can come to our buildings to pick up holds, browse materials, and use computers without an appointment. Learn more.  

A small number of curbside pickup appointments are still available for vulnerable members of the community who cannot enter the library. 

Appointments are limited and may fill quickly. They must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. To make an appointment:

Step One: Place a Hold on your Items

  • Search for and place a hold on the items you want using our website or the WashCoLib mobile app. 
  • When placing your hold, select your desired pickup library. Note: The Mahtomedi District Education Center closed until further notice. Items on hold there will be rerouted to Lake Elmo Library. 
  • You will be notified via email when your hold is ready. 

Step Two: Schedule a Future Pickup Time

When you receive the email notification that your hold is ready, there are a few ways to schedule a curbside pickup:

Step Three: Pick up Your Items

  • When you arrive to pick up your holds, look for the curbside pickup location. There will be signs to help direct you.
