[ARCHIVED] NOTICE: Brookings Public Library Information

Newsflash Covid-19 2020 - BPL COVID-19 Update

A message on behalf of the Brookings Public Library:

With the addition of Curbside Pick-Up at the Brookings Public Library, staff would like to remind the public about a couple of items related to checking out and returning library materials.

Please follow all due dates for materials and return them on time using the drop slots located south of the Library entrance. Fines will accrue if items are returned late. If patrons are unsure of due dates, they can view their items out and due dates by logging into their accounts at using their library card number with no spaces, and the first eight characters of their last name in lowercase letters as the pin. If their last name is shorter than 8 characters, then it’s just their last name. Items can also be renewed through their account login, if they are eligible for renewal, haven’t already been renewed before, or if no one else is waiting for the item.

Library Staff are “quarantining” returned items for 2-3 days upon return, so they will still show up on patron accounts until cleared to check in. No fines will be accrued during the period while items are quarantined, but fines can still accrue if the item is turned into the book drop after the due date.

Curbside Service is available Monday-Thursday from 9:30 am-12:00 pm and 1:00 pm-4:30 pm. Available items placed on hold are generally available by the next Curbside day, if not the same day. Staff ask that patrons pick up curbside items promptly, as items will only remain on hold for one week. More information about Curbside Pick-Up and how to place holds can be found at under Library Services.

Brookings County residents who do not already have a Brookings Public Library card can apply for one by going to and clicking on Apply for a Library card under How Do I?
