Grab & Go Holds!

Radford Public Library wants to help you stay in, maintain social distance, and stay safe during COVID-19! If books, DVDs, music CDs, audiobooks and magazines can help you during this time, then Grab & Go is for you! Simply place items on hold online or by phone, and then we’ll work with you to schedule an appointed time to pick them up!

Please follow these steps if you would like to pick up items from RPL:

1.Place your desire items on hold! (Hold how-to below)

*You can do this any day through the library’s online card catalog at, or by calling the library at (540) 731-3621 during business hours.  You will only be able to pick up your items at your appointed time.  

*To place holds online, please use the search box below, then sign into the library’s online catalog with your card number and PIN (last 4 digits of your card number) to place holds!  You need this same information to use online library resources like Hoopla and OverDrive too!

2. Call us at 731-3621 to schedule same-day pick up.

*On the day you want to pick up the items, call (540) 731-3621 to schedule a pickup time for that day.  Be ready to verify your account information at this time with your library card number.

3. Pickup times are same-day appointments only!

4. You will receive instructions over the phone for how to pick up your books at the appointed time.

We are no longer offering curbside delivery. Instead, we place your hold items outside on a table for you to pick up so as to limit person-to-person contact. You will have a 10 minute scheduled window to arrive and pick up your holds. Holds will be in a bag with your name on it!

5. Go home!  Stay safe! Be less bored!  Social distance!  Enjoy your books, movies, audiobooks, and more!

6. Know that we’re thinking of you and are looking forward to seeing you at RPL again soon!
