Curbside Pickup Service

Loudoun County Public Library offers Curbside Pickup. The service allows customers to pick up items they have placed on hold outside at their local branch during opening hours. Click here to see your library's hours.


  • Place items on hold through the online catalog or by calling your local branch.
  • Wait for notification by either phone, email or text that your items are ready.
  • Call your branch to arrange a pickup time.
  • Once you arrive, call the phone number posted outside.
  • We'll give you directions on how to retrieve your items. 

Please note:

  • The setup is a little different at each branch. Please follow the posted signage.
  • Curbside Pickup is not available at the Law Library in Leesburg.

What about returns?

Materials may be returned at any branch 24 hours a day, seven days a week.



After I put items on hold, how long will it take for them to be ready?

As always, we can't provide estimates due to numerous variables such as if other customers have requested the same items and whether your branch already has the materials or if they have to be transferred from another branch. Please know we’re working as fast as we can to serve you and thank you for your patience.
