Coming Soon: Curbside Service

The Harrison Township Public Library will open for curbside service beginning on Monday, June 8th. Curbside service is easy. Just place your order, wait for notification that your order is ready, and then call us when you’re here. We’ll deliver your materials to your car with no-contact pickup.

Items can be reserved for pickup two ways:

  1. Use our online catalog at
  2. Place requests by phone with library staff members at (586) 329-1261

Requests may take up to 48 hours to process. Please wait for notification that your materials are ready before visiting the library for pickup. The library will be open for normal business hours while offering curbside service. For the safety of everyone, all returned items are placed in quarantine for 72 hours and our HTPL staff members follow strict safety guidelines.

We’re working to meet the requirements of the executive order so that we can open our building in a limited capacity soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to provide the best possible library service during this time.
