  • You will be given a 15 minute time slot to come and pick up your material.
  • Park in a designated spot marked with an orange cone near the S. Main St. entrance at NWL or near the main entrances at each branch.
  • Your items, labeled with your name, will be waiting for you on a table near the entrance.
  • Individuals with a handicapped parking permit may park in designated spaces and call the location specific phone numbers listed above for staff assistance.
