Curbside Service

You “otter” join us on Monday, April 13 for our curbside service! From 12-4pm, you’ll have the opportunity to call and request library materials for check out. Give us a few minutes to fill your order, then head on over to the library. We will bag up your items and bring them out to your car.

Visit, make sure to set the search to Otterbein Public Library, and browse our catalog. You can call 765-583-2107 to place your order.

When placing your order, please just give us a list of titles that you want, so as not to tie up the phone line too long.
