For your convenience, the library offers self-pickup-hold service. When you receive a notification that your requested item is ready, please visit our Hold Pickup shelving located across from the Help Desk. Items are shelved alphabetically by the last name and initial of the first name of the cardholder, which appears on the spine label. Should you prefer that the label lists a pseudonym, we are happy to accommodate your request. Please see a staff member to assist you.

Items retrieved from the Hold Pickup shelving may be checked out at the Help Desk or the Roxbury Public Library app.
