  • Limited-Contact Services

    Did you know you can return library materials and/or pickup new ones without coming inside the library? Staff are stationed at the entrance of each library location and can assist with returning materials or bringing out your items on hold. You can also call ahead for curbside pickup at our Lakeland Public Library and Larry R. Jackson Branch locations.

    Want to have library materials mailed directly to your house? Choose Lakeland Books by Mail as the pickup location for your holds or let library staff know you would like your materials mailed instead of made available for pickup.
