The pickup / drop-off process is easy and involves little or no in-person contact with others. Please follow all safety guidelines and instructions at your library.

  1. Make an appointment by phone or online.
  2. Visit your library to pick up and/or drop off your items.
  3. Enjoy your materials at home.

Library users can place holds by logging in to their PINES account or calling their library location.  You will be notified when materials are available for pickup. Customers at libraries not offering express services may arrange to pick up materials at another library location.  

Returned items will be quarantined before they are checked in, so it will take several days before customers see the materials removed from their library account.

Due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, all library buildings remain closed to the public until further notice.  Bookdrops are closed as well.  Until library buildings reopen, please remember:

  • Due dates are extended, overdue fees are waived, and library cards are renewed
  • If you do not already have a library card, you can apply for digital access to online resources.
  • Libraries are open online. Visit and follow @liveoakpl for information, resources, virtual programs, and more.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we carefully work toward a phased reopening. The health and safety of our customers, staff, and community is our top priority. 

Hope to see you again soon!
