  • Library patrons may request books, audio, DVDs, etc.. All requests must be made before pick-up.
  • After placing your hold, a KML staff member will call you when it is ready for pick up and schedule a pickup time. Items will be checked out on your pickup date. Standard lending periods apply. 
  • When picking up, park your car, come in the library front (Mary Ann Zak) or side doors to access the top lobby.
  • KML Staff will have your bagged items on a table in alphabetical order. Just find your bag, grab it and go!
  • All items must be returned into the Book Drop box. 
  • Patrons will not be permitted to browse the stacks at this time.

Please click here for instructions on how to place a hold through the online catalog.

All returned items are placed in quarantine for one week before being checked in. All staff wear masks & gloves per CDC Guidelines. 

Please note: We will do our very best to honor requests. We will be unable to accommodate requests for items from any other libraries at this time.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you!
