GRPL To Go: Pick Up Your Holds!

1. Place a hold on the item you want.
There are two ways to place a hold: through your account on our catalog, or over the phone by calling 616-988-5400, option 4. Tip: have your library card on hand!

Need help placing a hold? Read here for more details.

2. Wait until you receive a notification that your hold is available for pickup.

3. Visit your pickup location during the GRPL To Go hours.
Library hours are currently limited. Service hours listed below.

4. Call or text the library when you arrive.
Signs will be posted at each branch with the phone number to call or text. Please provide staff with your full name, library card number, and parking spot number.

It may take 10-15 minutes for staff to process your pickup request.

5. Staff will bring the item out to you.
Staff will bring the items out and will place them in your trunk or the backseat of your vehicle.
