If a book is only in the Cole collection, can it be sent to the Dove Library to be checked out? Or do we need to drive to that library?
Effective Sept. 1, 2016, the Cole Library is closed for remodel/redesign. It will reopen in early 2016.
A portion of the Cole materials will be available at the Library Learning Center and at the Carlsbad City Library on Dove Lane. If you find a circulating item in the online catalog, it is available to place on hold.
Yes, a book from Cole can be sent to the Dove for pick up at your request. The Library has a courier who transfers material among the three branches daily (the Library Learning Center is our third branch).
If you place the hold yourself, be sure to choose the Dove library in the drop down menu when you specify location. You may also call the Dove Reference Desk (760-602-2038) to place your hold; we will call the other library and have someone pull the book from the shelf. Most materials will be delivered within 1-2 days. We will notify you when the material arrives.
