Opting out of Delivery:

Now that that all the CBCPL Libraries are open you do not need to opt out of Delivery. Your items will be waiting to be delivered on the Corvallis holds shelf and can be picked up in person at any time. If you don’t pick them up, we will deliver them to you.

If you are an Alsea, Monroe or Philomath patron and would like to pick up your holds at your home branch instead of using Delivery, please contact your home Branch Library

Anyone who has a library card. Deliveries are limited to the library’s service district, which includes most of Benton County. To keep you and library staff safe, we require that the delivery location can accommodate physical distancing.

If we cannot easily access your front door (e.g. gated communities) we may not be able to deliver to your home. That said, if you are interested in signing up for the program but believe you might not be eligible, please call us and inquire: 541-766-6448 or 541-766-6793.

Patrons  should expect 1 delivery a week depending on their holds activity.

We recommend that you or someone in your family is home to accept delivery. If that is not possible, call us at 541-766-6448 or 541-766-6793 to let us know. At this time, we plan to make deliveries every week, from Monday-Friday. The schedule is subject to change based on demand. When setting up your account for this program, staff will ask if there is a phone number we can text or call in case there are any questions at the time of delivery. Due to staff time constraints, we will not be able to contact every patron prior to arrival. You should expect a delivery within 3-7 days of your items being checked out on your account.

It’s free to anyone that qualifies for the program.

This is an opt-in program. Patrons must use the online registration form here, call the library, or email us and ask to be included. Our phone number is 541-766-6448 or 541-766-6793 and our email address is askalibrarian@corvallisoregon.gov. At sign-up we will ask you for your library card number, delivery address, and phone number.

We may have a high volume of deliveries to make as this program grows.  We will deliver what we can to you with the limited space we have. If there are sufficient staff to do so, we will attempt to deliver to you about once a week.

The easiest way to request more materials that we can deliver is to search on the catalog website, library.ci.corvallis.or.us, for what you want, look for titles listed as available, and then click the “Place Hold” button. You will be prompted to log in with your library card number and PIN. If you need help navigating this process, please give us a call at 541-766-6448 or 541-766-6793 and we can walk you through it.

If you don’t have your card number or password please still give us a call at 541-766-6448. Library staff will verify the information on file and can either place requests for you or issue you a temporary login.

Please return materials to a book drop at any CBCPL library branch: in Alsea, Corvallis, Philomath or Monroe.  Library staff who are making deliveries will also pick up items that need to be returned, as long as staff have space in their vehicles, and the items are in a sealed bag, labeled as library returns. Given the popularity of the program, we cannot contact you ahead of time to let you know which day we will be coming by your home. We no longer charge overdue fines for items.

This is an opt-in service only. If you do not sign up for the program, we will not deliver materials to your home.

Delivery service maximizes the number of patrons we can serve at once, and maintains safe physical distancing for library staff and patrons while circulating library materials. For patrons who prefer not to sign up for library delivery services, the Corvallis, Monroe, Philomath, and Alsea buildings are open as usual: cbcpl.net/locations-and-hours
