Library Pick-Up Service

Pick-Up Service with Minimal Contact


While our building is open and we welcome you to come in to select resources from our shelves, we will continue to provide access to library materials through the pick-up service outlined below. The process is ideal for our patrons who desire minimal-contact.

Complete a Form. Materials may be requested using this form (one item per form). Please complete the Title, Author, and Call # fields as this will greatly reduce staff time needed to pull the material from the shelves.

Scheduled Pick-Up. You may pick up your materials anytime the Library is open (see Library Hours). Library staff will email you when your request is ready for pick-up or if there are any issues. 

Pick-Up Location. The pick-up location is at the Library's Check Out Desk. Your requested material will be available for pickup for five days, and if you do not retrieve it, it will then be checked in and reshelved.

Returning Materials. Please return books to the Check Out Desk, in the tan Book Return bin located outside the north entrance (near the Bell Tower), or in the Book Return located in the south entrance vestibule. If you have equipment or DVDs to return, these cannot be returned through the Book Returns and must be returned to the Check Out Desk.

Email with questions on any part of this process.

Changes in the Library (Fall 2020)

Zondervan Library has made some necessary changes to accommodate safety measures for the 2020-2021 academic year. We will regularly review and consider the decisions we have made to adapt to social distancing. Our goal is to provide as many places for quiet study as possible while working within current guidelines.

  • Food is not permitted in the Library or Geek Room. We have created an Eating Zone located in the Galleria.
  • We focused on individual study, meaning that some chairs and study carrels have been removed or spaced for social distancing. Please do not move furniture or add chairs to tables. 
  • Study rooms are currently open at reduced capacity (1 person per room) until further notice.
  • Returned materials are quarantined for 3 days.
  • Plexiglass is installed in key service locations.

Please contact our general email ( with questions.
