Taber Public Library will be closed to the public Friday, February 1 through to Monday, February 18, 2019 for maintenance. Regular business hours are scheduled to resume Tuesday, February 19, 2019. During that time Taber Public Library will still be offering materials to be placed on hold, material returns and program - just at different locations!
Taber Public Library patrons currently have 3 options when it comes to their holds:
1) Holds may be paused.
This can be done by logging into your account online using your library card barcode and PIN. Once you log in, click on your account name in the top-right corner and click on " On Hold." From there you may pause your holds.
For more instructions, please see our How to Pause a Hold document.
2) Holds may be sent to Barnwell Public Library.
If you are able to travel, holds may be sent to Barnwell Public Library. Pick-up location can be done by logging into your account online using your library card barcode and PIN. Once you log in, click on your account name in the top-right corner and click on "My Settings." From there you may scroll down to "Holds and Pickup Location," where you can click "Change." You can either add Barnwell Public Library as an additional location, or as your primary location during Taber Public Library's closure.
For more instructions, please see our How to Change Pick-Up Locations document.
During business hours, Barnwell Public Library also offers in-person circulation support, such as placing holds. Please visit Barnwell Public Library's website for location and hours.
3) Holds may be picked up at the Pop-Up Pick-Up Location.
