Grab-n-Go at Norfolk Public Library

Did you know? Norfolk Public Library and Slover Library are open for Grab-n-Go!

What is Grab-n-Go service?

With Grab-n-Go service, patrons may enter the lobby area to pick up holds, check out materials, apply for or renew a library card, and get help with questions. Staff will retrieve books and materials on the shelves for patrons while they wait. To ensure wait times are reasonable, staff will retrieve up to five items while you wait. If you wish to request more items you may leave a list of those items with staff and return to pick them up at another time. You can search the collection and place holds using the online catalog.
