How do I get a book?

You can reserve books or movies and pick them up from a cart outside.

Reserve items on the catalog, email us your requests, or call us.

At this time, we are limiting reserves to 3 per card.

Please note that your default password for the catalog is your seven-digit phone number, including the hyphen.

Can I return my materials?

You can return your materials at any time through our metal book drop. We collect them at the end of every work day, and then quarantine them. All items are quarantined for a minimum of 3 calendar days. Only after quarantine will they be checked in, so please don’t worry if they appear on your account for several days.

Need a Library Card?

Email us at whipplefreelibrary@gmail.com with your name, address and phone number. We will set you up with a temporary account for a year. Cards for children are available for age 6 and older. Please include age when applying for your child. We are currently open for appointments, so we ask that you come in for your card and we will update your account to the standard five year renewal.
