Temporary Borrowing Measures

Select Libraries are Open for In-Person Browsing and Curbside Pickup

Curbside pickup materials must be reserved ahead of time by visiting the library’s online catalog at   

How it works: 

  • Reserve material using the online catalog at or by calling one of the designated service locations.  
  • Wait for notification by either phone, email or text. 
  • Upon arrival, call the service location. 
  • Show photo ID without opening your vehicle’s window. 
  • Open the back seat door or trunk of your car   
  • Library staff will place bagged library materials inside vehicle. 
  • If you don't already have a library card, you can register for one by clicking on this link.

​Curbside service will vary slightly at each library branch so visitors are encouraged to follow the posted signage.  All wait times for holds may be longer than usual. The library will quarantine and clean all materials for 96 hours (4 days) before they are re-shelved and available for checkout. In addition, any fines due to the library can be paid online or at libraries open for walkin.  For more information on the El Paso Public Library curbside service, call the numbers listed above or visit

Book returns at these locations will be allowed on Thursdays and Fridays (or until bins are full).

Visitors may walk in the library and pick what they want to checkout but are encouraged to use self-check out machines. Visitors will not be allowed to sit and read or lounge inside the library.
