For questions on any of these services or general library inquiries please email wpl-intouch@cityofwestminster.us

Place Holds Again Beginning May 15

You may begin placing holds again via the online catalog or WPL-in Touch mobile app on most physical materials. Some items that are more difficult to sanitize such as dolls, STEM kits, book bags, nature backpacks, etc. will be not be available for holds at this time.

Book Drops Reopen on May 16

  • On May 16, book drops will reopen at College Hill and Irving Street libraries for return of materials checked out from Westminster Public Library only. Beginning Sunday, book drops will be open 24/7. Returned items will be sanitized and quarantined before being checked in, so your account may not reflect the return immediately. 
  • If you are unable to return your items, or choose not to for your own health and safety, you may wait until a more convenient time. All item due dates are currently extended through June 15.
  • Please practice social distancing when accessing the book drops and wait patiently until the patron before you has finished their transaction. See City of Westminster Resolution 17A dated May 11 regarding the wearing of face coverings.
  • The library is not accepting donations at this time. For your safety and the safety of others, please do not leave donations outside the library or in the book drop. Thank you for your understanding.
