Drive-up Services

Our Drive-Up Window is located on the east side of the building.

  • You may return materials 24/7 into the Drive-up return slots (past the Window). 
  • During our Browse, Checkout & Go phase (beginning July 6), if you do not wish to come into the Library or do not want to wear the required mask while in the building, you may place holds in the catalog and use our Drive-Up Window to pick them up once available. When logged into your account and placing a hold, you may set the pickup library as “Cary Area Public Library Drive-up window.”

    Watch this short video on how to do this:

  • Please note that we are not able to answer reference questions, add new library cards, or do program registration at the Window. You may instead call us (847-639-4210, press 4) or contact us online for help with these services. You may also visit our Service Center for help with these services, but you must wear a mask while in the building.
