You can view our collection online by going to www.winfieldpubliclibrary.com
At the top of the page click the Library Search link. This will let you search or browse our collection.
You have 2 choices to reserve items:
- You can call the library at 205-487-2484 and tell staff what you would like to borrow and set up a time for pickup.
- While viewing the library catalog, you should see an account log on option in the top right corner. Username will be your first initial and last name, all lower case. Password will be your library card number. Your library card number is located on the back of your card, use the barcode numbers. nAfter you log on you can click on the items you would like to checkout, then click on the reserve button. When you see the message “Item reserved successfully” you can click the top right X and continue to browse and reserve. You will still be limited to 6 items with a 2 movie/TV series limit. The library staff will get a notification that you have placed items on reserve. The staff will gather your items then call or text you when they are available to be picked up. You need to be sure we have your current phone number on file.
We ask that patrons stay in their vehicle and call the library at 205-487-2484 to inform staff you are in the parking lot.
The staff will let you know if your items are ready and will place on a table outside in a bag with your name attached.
We ask that all patrons follow social distancing protocols while waiting for your items.
6-feet spacing will be marked outside but waiting in your car will be the best procedure.
We are safely reopening the library in phases. Please be patient as the library remains closed until further notice.
The Covid-19 virus has had an unprecedented impact on the library and the communities we serve.
Our plan to reopen is dependent on factors such as recommendations from local and national health agencies, social distancing protocols, critical community needs, and a sustained reduction in new Covid-19 cases within the community for at least 14 days. The primary consideration is maintaining the safety of library patrons and staff while finding ways to provide necessary services that the library is uniquely positioned to perform.
NO DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME – NO EXCEPTIONS!
PHASE III will be announced ASAP. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
