Curbside Service is Now Available!

We know you miss the library, and we miss you too! For everyone’s safety, we will be resuming our services in phases. Beginning Thursday, May 7, 2020 we will be offering a curbside service for our patrons at both the Aurora Public Library and the Dillsboro Public Library. Here’s how to utilize the service:


You may request items from the online catalog (see instructions below on how to do this), or you can give us a call at 812-926-0646 and we will take care of the request for you.



We will call you when your items are ready to be picked up. Please note that items coming from the other branch may take longer than normal to arrive. We appreciate your patience.



 Once you receive a call, you may come to the library to pick up your items. Call us when you arrive and we will bring the items to your car.



If you have items to return, you may give them to us when we bring your new items. Please note that our book drops are open, so you may return your items at your convenience.



We will offer more services as soon as it is safe to do so. Thank you for patience and support of the library.


How to place requests online:

Visit and type in the title in the online catalog. Then press Go.

Find the correct item in the list and select Place Hold.

A box will pop up asking you to login. Enter your library card number in the box titled Library ID. Enter your pin in the box titled PIN. Then select Log In. If you do not know your pin number please call us at 812-926-0646, and we will reset it for you.

Once you are logged in a new box will appear. Select your pickup location from the drop down menu, and select whether you want the first available copy or if you want a specific copy. Then select Submit Hold.


If the hold went through successfully you should see a green bar at the top of your screen that says Hold(s) Placed Successfully.
