MTL Offering Curbside Service!

Curbside pickup will begin on 8 June 2020. Holds may be placed online through the Morrison-Talbott Library website under your account, via email to or by telephone at 618-939-6232.

Curbside Pickup Hours: M-Th 10am-1pm and 4-7pm; Saturday 9:30am to 12:30pm.

Holds placed online through the website will require the use of the barcode number from your library card and your pin. Holds will be limited to items owned by Morrison-Talbott Library, as IHLS is currently not offering Interlibrary Loan (items exchanged between libraries delivered by couriers).

Orders will be limited to 10 items. Holds must be placed in advance; no items can be requested or added at time of pick-up.

Families should place orders together, with the 10 items limit.

Hold requests will be filled as soon as possible. Same day orders may not be possible due to volume of requests.

Please wait until you have received an email or phone call that your holds are ready before coming to the library.

Please remember: All items returned will be quarantined for 72 hours upon return. Items will remain in "checked-out" status on your account during ths quarantine period.
