How it Works

MPL To Go, Muncie Public Library's curbside service starts Monday, June 1! This is how it works:
  1. Place reserves online or by phone at your desired location. If you need to print, copy, or fax materials, call Information Services.
  2. A library staff member will call when your materials are ready for pick up to schedule a curbside appointment.
  3. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the number listed in the reserved parking space. 
  4. Please have your trunk open. We will place your materials inside.
  5. If you have materials to be returned, please do this in the drop box before or after your appointment, as employees cannot accept materials.
  6. If you are walking, please call the number listed at the front of the building or west side of the building (Maring-Hunt Library only) to receive directions on how to pick up materials.
