ACLA Mobile Library Services will be offering curbside pickups at select locations soon! This will be a non-contact drop off of requested items in brown paper bags and collection of items that need returned. No bookmobile access will be granted at this time due to concerns over the inherent confined space of a bookmobile. A staff member will hand you your pre-checked out items through the door, and your returns can be placed in the receptacle we will have outside the truck. There is no county-wide delivery up and running yet, so requested items will be limited to our collection. Please call (412) 321-1853 to let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll see if we have it!

Even though we are not traveling the roads of Allegheny County presently, everyone at Mobile Library Services has been busy compiling resources to help you and your family pass the time. Links to those resources can be found in the sidebar on the right side of our page. You can explore travel and leisure, movies, concerts and music, sports, and a host of resources for kids and family. For those that work in senior facilities, there are links that can be explored with your residents. For parents with small children, check our our YouTube channel for periodic story times!
