New Titles at the Library

While our building remains closed to the public, the Carpenter Memorial Library is now offering 



Step 1:   Place Your Items on Hold by calling us at (509) 674-2313 (you can leave a voicemail) or emailing (please note “Request Curbside Service” in the subject line). You can request items by title, author, or subject matter.  You can also browse available items through our online catalog and place holds on specific items here Please limit your requests to no more than 10 items per checkout. 


Step 2:  Schedule a Pickup Time.  Once your holds are ready, the library will contact you to schedule a pick up time (this may take up to 1-2 business days).


Step 3:  Arrive at the Library at your scheduled pick up time.  Your items will be in a bag with your name on it.  Depending on the weather, they will either be on a cart outside or inside the lobby.  Please wear a mask and abide by social distancing if there are others picking up materials.  If necessary, or you require items brought directly to your vehicle, you may call the library to let us know you are waiting outside. 


Pick Up Hours:

Monday 10-3, Tuesday 10-3, Wednesday 12-6,

Friday 10-3.


Please note: The library building remains closed to the public.  For the safety of patrons and staff, all materials are to be returned to the exterior book drop, and will be quarantined for 4 days. Library staff will not answer the door – all communication must be over the phone or by email. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this new phase of library services.   



Our Book Drop is Open!

While the library remains closed to the public, our exterior book drop is open 24/7.  All returns are quarantined for 4-7 days before being checked in and will still show up on your library record during that time.  You you may still recieve a notice letting you know they are due, but we have extended our grace period to compensate for this and you will not be charged overdue fees while your items are quarantined.  

We are unable to accept donations at this time, and we ask that you please do not place them in the bookdrop or leave boxes outside the building.  Thank you.

Made possible with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services
through the Washington State Library, Office of the Secretary of State.
