Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College’s libraries on the Winter Haven and Lakeland campuses are offering curbside pickup and mail delivery in addition to virtual options available to access books and resources.

To reserve books for pickup or mail delivery, students and employees should visit libguides.polk.edu/curbside and follow the instructions:

  1. Place hold on items online in the Library catalog.
  2. Fill out the form for either curbside pickup or books by mail.
  3. Wait to receive confirmation. Library staff will confirm that items are available prior to pickup or delivery. Please wait for confirmation prior to making a trip to campus.
  4. Come to the designated pickup area and have a photo ID ready.

Books can be picked up curbside in the Winter Haven Fine Arts (WFA) Building car loop area on the Winter Haven Campus or the first row of parking in the Lakeland Learning Center (LLC) parking lot on the Lakeland Campus. Students and employees should call the phone number on the signs designating the areas for library curbside pickup upon arrival.

Students and employees may also call the Winter Haven Campus Library at 863.297.1040 or the Lakeland Campus Library at 863.297.1042 for help with reserving books for pickup or delivery.

Books, resources, and assistance are also available in the Polk State Virtual Library (canvas.polk.edu/courses/15942), LibGuides, and through Ask A Librarian.
