MIDDLETON–The Middleton Public Library is now offering expanded curbside pickup. Due to a variety of logistical factors, such as no inter-library delivery, building design, and staffing for social distancing, curbside pickup services are limited and vary by location www.scls.info/librariesbounceback.

Please see the below instructions for placing holds on Middleton owned materials and scheduling a pick-up time.  

Due Dates & Returns: July 1 is the updated and extended due date for all materials checked out from the Middleton Public Library. The library is asking that patrons hold on to the items they currently have checked out–all book drops remain closed at this time.

Hold Materials and Curbside Pickup: 

Please visit  https://mid.linkcat.info/  to search and place holds for items on the shelf at the Middleton Public Library.  We are not receiving delivery from other libraries and only processing holds for items that are currently on the shelf and available at Middleton. 

Once your hold is processed and ready for pickup you will receive a confirmation. Pick up times are Monday-Friday, 1-4 p.m. and the schedule opens daily. Schedule your day-of pick up at  midlibrary.org/pickup.

Due to high volume and limited staffing, thank you for reserving phone calls are for those that do not have Internet access.

Park along Hubbard Ave or in the lots next to or even behind the building. Look for “Middleton Public Library Free Internet” on your device.

What If I Don't Have a Library Card?:

Residents of the South Central Library System service area who do not have a library card can  apply for a card online www.midlibrary.org/CardRegistration.

What is Zoom?:  

Zoom is a free video conferencing product that works on most devices that have a microphone and front facing camera–laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets. The library is using Zoom’s video capabilities so you can see the presenter in real time, from the comfort of your own home, while the library is closed. Visit zoom.us to get started. Using Zoom is free but requires participants to create an account. Download Zoom on your computer or install the zoom app on your device. We recommend setting up Zoom in advance of the start of the program.
