Curbside Pickup

The Portage County Public Library is now offering curbside service for library materials at all four branches, Almond, Plover, Rosholt, and Stevens Point.

You may request up to 5 items by phone or place a local hold through LINKcat. We will do our best to provide the items on your list, but that may not always be possible. Only items currently on the shelf at your pickup location will be available, so please check LinkCat for availability, https://pcpl.linkcat.info. Our items are listed as “PCPL-(Branch)”, such as “PCPL-Rosholt branch”. We currently have no way to get items from other libraries in the SCLS system.

In making a phone request, you may provide exact titles and authors, or a particular subject or genre. The request can be as simple as “I want five Clive Cussler books”. It is important to specify if you want Large Print, Blu-Ray, Audios, etc., and whether you are seeking adult or children’s items.

In making LINKcat hold requests, go to https://pcpl.linkcat.info, search for your item, verify it is on the shelf at the branch you wish to pick it up, and then place a hold on your requested items.  When placing the hold, the pickup point MUST be the library where the item is located.

After your order is complete, the library will call you to arrange a pickup day and time.
