NEW! No-Contact Curbside Pickup Update:
While the Willmar Public Library remains closed until further notice, we
have plans to return to full regular hours for no-contact curbside hold
pickup as soon as possible. Check our website, social media, or call
320-235-3162 for current hours.
Step 1: Place a hold.
Request items for pickup by using the online catalog at
https://iii.pioneerland.lib.mn.us/ or by calling 320-235-3162.
Step 2: Wait for a call or email notifying you your items are ready.
Starting June 1st, patrons who are set up for email notifications will
receive an email. If your notification preference is phone, library
staff will call you when your requested items are ready.
Step 3: Pickup items.
Park in the designated area outside the library entrance and call to let
us know you arrived. Curbside pickup is available ___ Have your library
card number ready. Remain in your vehicle as library staff places your
bag outside. After they have returned inside, grab your bag and go.
