How curbside service works
“Effective May 21, 2020, you may be allowed to pick up your holds. 
 
Here’s how it works:
 
Pickup: 
 
1. You may put a hold on items by calling, emailing, or using your account online.
 
2. We’ll call you when your items are ready for pickup. 
 
3. Once you are at the library, you’ll call our front desk and identify yourself.
 
4. We’ll check your items out and we’ll bring the items out to you. 
 
For safety of our employees and other patrons, the Banning Library still requires patrons and staff to wear a face mask. We reserve the right to refuse service to any patron that does not comply with this safety requirement.
 
All items will be cleaned and or sanitized before we give them out to you. We recommend you bring a bag or two if you believe you’ll need them. 
 
If there’s a book that you’ll like that isn’t in our catalog you may fill out a Zip Book Request and have it delivered to your house at no charge. 
 
Returning items:
 
1. Please return all books in the book-drop. Staff will frequently remove books from the book-drop throughout the day. 
 
2. Do not put any DVDs in the book-drop. Please call  the front desk if you have any DVDs to return. 
 
There won’t be any late fees until further notice. 
 
If you have fees or fines you can mail a check to us or pay with credit card over the phone.
