Sitka Public Library Now Offers Books To Go

Sitka Public Library is closed until May 1st, but we are now offering limited checkout options during the closure! Starting on April 1st we have two different options for checkout, so please read carefully!

Option 1: Surprise Bundles

Email library@cityofsitka.org to request a bundle of 5 surprise items selected by a librarian just for you! Selections will be based on the child’s age (for children’s materials) or a preferred genre (for adult materials) and will be checked out directly to your account. Pickup day and time will be confirmed via email, and you can swing by the library to receive your selections. In your email, please include the full name on your library account, your barcode number (if possible), contact information, and child’s age or adult preferred genre. We will respond as soon as possible.

Option 2: Hold Requests

If you already know which titles you would like, you may give us a call and request specific items over the phone. This option is limited to t3 items per week. Just give us a call at 747-4020 Monday-Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM, and we will walk you through the process. All items will be available to pick up on the next business day from 12-2 PM.  

Please note that only Sitka Public Library items are available at this time and we are unable to place holds on items from other ALC libraries. All holds must be placed with library staff – you will not be able to place a hold from your account while the library is closed to the public.

The health and safety of our patrons and library staff is very important to us. We are cleaning and disinfecting all library materials as they enter and exit the library, in addition to deep cleaning the building. Please help us by practicing good social distancing when you pick up library items.

If you have questions about either of these options or need some extra help, give us a call at 747-4020 or email us at library@cityofsitka.org. Thank you!
