Curbside Pickup

The West Fargo Public Library offers no-contact curbside material pickup. Patrons can pick up held items including books, audiobooks, DVDs and music CDs. Below is the procedure for this new curbside pickup service.

1. Patrons can place holds via My Library Account, over the phone at 701-515-5200 or by emailing askus@westfargond.gov. Patrons are able to choose specific materials to be held or discuss their needs with a librarian for assistance. 

2. When the hold is ready to be picked up, patrons will be notified via email or text message depending on what communication type they chose for their account. 

3. Patrons must then call 701-515-5200 when they have arrived to pick up their materials. 

4. The pickup process will include no physical contact between staff and patrons. A staff person will place the requested items on a table in the entrance of the West Fargo Public Library. Patrons will then grab their items after the staff person has returned inside the building. 

In-Library Pickup

Patrons who intend to visit the library may place holds before visiting and then pick up their items from our designated hold shelf during their visit. PLEASE NOTE: When you pick up materials in the library, they are not yet checked out to you so you much check them out either by visiting the circulation desk or by using our self-checkout machine.

Binge Bags (formerly Book Bundles)

Our popular Book Bundles program has expanded and is now called Binge Bags. Patrons can place a hold for a bag of materials on a certain topic using our Binge Bag Request Form. Patrons must be sure to fill out the age of the reader, type of media they'd like included and what category. Binge Bags will include three to five items for patrons to enjoy or "binge." To pick up a Binge Bag, patrons can follow the same steps outlined above for curbside or in-library pickup.
