Curbside Pickup

6 Middlesex County Library locations are currently offering curbside pickup.  Patrons are able to place items on hold and select their desired pickup location using our online catalogue or the My Library! app. Once notified that items are available for pickup, visit the pickup location during the designated curbside hours. Please bring your library card and adhere to posted directions regarding social distancing.

Patrons will have two weeks to pick-up a hold after being notified that it is available.  Those patrons without an email address on their account will be notified by phone, all others will receive the automated email messages that were in use prior to the closure.

Additional Information

We are still working through the requests placed via the online Item Request form, you will be contacted when these items arrive at your selected branch.

If you are a Virtual Card holder you will need to upgrade your card before checking out items. Please be sure to bring your library card, ID and proof of address when visiting to pickup items.  

For patrons outside of these communities and those unable to visit a branch during curbside hours, we are still offering Items by Mail.  To use this option simply select "Mail My Items" as the pickup location when placing holds.

When searching our online catalogue, you may notice that some items will show up in your search results, but you will not have the option to place them on hold.  These items are temporarily unavailable due to branch closures.  We apologize for this inconvenience, and thank you for your patience while we work through our phased re-opening process.

For Patrons of Closed Branches

All holds that were placed prior to, and during the weeks immediately following, our March 17 closure that were for pickup at the Ailsa Craig, Coldstream, Delaware, Ilderton, Melbourne, Mt. Brydges, Newbury, Thorndale and Wardsville branches will have their pickup location changed to a nearby branch open for curbside pickup.  The changed pickup locations will be as follows:

  • Ailsa Craig will be changed to Parkhill
  • Coldstream, Delaware, Ilderton and Mt. Brydges will be changed to Komoka
  • Melbourne, Newbury and Wardsville will be changed to Glencoe
  • Thorndale will be changed to Dorchester

If you would prefer a different pickup location, login to your online account and select your preferred curbside pickup location (currently Dorchester, Glencoe, Komoka, Lucan, Parkhill and Strathroy) from the drop down menu.
