School Deliveries via Library Link

Students and teachers, save yourself a trip to the library! Request free delivery of books, movies and music to your school.

Important Dates for 2020

  • March 17: Last day items were delivered and picked up for the 2019/2020 school year.
  • TBD: First day to reserve items for delivery to the schools.
  • TBD: First day that items will be delivered to the schools.

Note: Reserved items that come in for you after our last delivery day can be found at the library's pick-up window. You will have 4 days to pick up the item once you receive the message that it is "ready for pickup".

Am I eligible to participate?

Yes, if you are a student, faculty or staff member at a participating school.

What can I request?

All items can be requested for delivery except art prints and wi-fi hotspots. (All cardholder policies and restrictions apply. Learn more.)

How do I place an order?

With your Westerville Library card, reserve an item. When asked where you would like to pick up your item, select your school.

If you don't have a library card, request an application from your school librarian or office staff, or visit the Westerville Library with your parent or guardian. (For additional privileges, teachers can apply for an educator card.)

When and where can I pick up my requests?

When your item's status appears as "ready for pickup", you will receive a notification. Your item will then be checked out to you and delivered to your school, usually within 1-2 business days.

Each school has a designated area for pickup of library items, oftentimes in the school's library or office on a cart or in a bin. To determine where to pick up your item, check with your teacher, school librarian or office staff.

Including the day it was delivered, your item will remain available for pickup at your school for 7 days. If you do not pick up your item within 7 days, it will be returned to the library and checked in.

Why wasn't my item delivered?

In the following instances, items will not be delivered to your school upon request.

  • Your library account has a fine over $10. (This block will be removed when your fines are paid down to $10 or less. Items that were not delivered will be set aside for you until the block is removed or the hold expires.)
  • You applied for a library card online, but you have not yet come in to the library with your parent or guardian to be issued your physical card.
  • You returned an item without all of its pieces.

I'm a parent. Can I pick up items for myself from my child's school?

Parents and guardians, you can request items for school delivery using a library card issued in your child's name. Your child must then be the one to pick up your item from the school's designated area.

How many items can I borrow?

As many as you can carry and for as many as you wish to be financially responsible.

How long can I keep my item?

To find out when your item is due, check your online account or contact us.

How do I return my items?

You can return any items borrowed from the library (except art prints and wi-fi hotspots) to your school's designated area or to the library.
