At this time, the Grand Forks Public Library remains closed to the public. However, you may request items using our curbside service. We cannot guarantee immediate availability of requested items due to the safety protocols in place. Book drops are open 24/7.
Please note the following when placing requests for items:
All requests for materials must be placed online (gflibrary.com) or by phone (701-772-8116) and are limited to the items located at Grand Forks Public.
We will not receive items from other libraries at this time. If you have any interlibrary loans, please return them at your earliest convenience to the main book drop located at 2110 Library Circle. As a reminder, all interlibrary loans are due. All Grand Forks Public items checked out before the library closed in March are also due now. Regular checkout periods apply to all items checked out via curbside service.
There is a 5-item request limit per card and a 20-item request limit per family.
After your requests are prepared, you will receive a hold notice via email or through the postal service. Online library accounts may indicate that your hold is ready. However, please wait for your hold letter to ensure that is indeed correct. Please follow the pick-up guidelines as indicated in the hold letter.
Pick up dates and times are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between the hours of 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m.
The following service will NOT be available during this time:
All items can be returned at any of our four book drop locations, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (in front of the library, Thompson Public School, YMCA, or Choice Health & Fitness) and will be quarantined for four days before being checked in. Late fees will not accrue for the four days items are in quarantine.
