May 14, 2020 update - The River Falls Public Library will be following the guidance of local officials when considering any changes to our current service level. There are no changes planned at this time. We will continue to provide curbside and virtual services only.

Curbside Pickup
The River Falls Public Library is offering curbside pickup of materials for limited hours and by appointment ONLY.

Pick-ups are scheduled Monday through Friday in 15-minute increments from 10 a.m. - 5:45 p.m.  Seniors and the immunocompromised may schedule pick-ups from 9 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.

At this time, we are only able to fill holds on materials that are available on the shelves in the River Falls Public Library. 
(Instructions for limiting to materials available in River Falls at bottom of this page.)

Materials from other MORE libraries will take much longer to be filled, even materials that have the status of "in transit" due to quarantine times and fewer deliveries.  MORE libraries are not pulling available materials from their shelves to send out to other libraries at this time.   

We will contact patrons by phone when holds are filled and staff will assist patrons with scheduling a pickup time.

There will be designated “curbside pickup only” parking stalls in the library parking lot. Holds will be placed in labeled paper bags with patron alias clearly marked on each bag on a table near the library doors. The items in the bags will already be checked out. Please be timely with your scheduled pickup. The library building remains closed. This is a no contact service, meaning that staff will not be outdoors working at the tables.

Requesting Local Materials Online
1 - Place item(s) on hold

  • Go to the MORE Catalog - www.more.lib.wi.us and search for items currently available at the River Falls Public Library and be sure to set the pickup location to River Falls Public Library.
    (See instructions at bottom of this page.)

2 - Once your hold is filled, a staff member will call you to schedule a pickup time

Pick-ups are scheduled Monday through Friday in 15-minute increments from 10 a.m. - 5:45 p.m.  Seniors and the immunocompromised may schedule pick-ups from 9 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.

3 - Staff will check your hold out to you, place it in a paper bag on a designated table outside the parking lot entrance to the library. Your alias will be clearly printed on your materials for easy identification when you arrive.  Please do not arrive early.

  • Alias = first two letters of your last name + first two letters of your first name + last for digits of your phone number. 
    ​For example Chris Smith 715-555-4563 is alias SMCR4563
