Children in the Library
While children are welcome to come collect materials in the library, they are not encouraged to stay just yet. All toys and activities in the children’s room have been removed for the foreseeable future. Loitering is strongly discouraged and all after-school activities have been suspended.
A new drop box is located by the south-side handicapped accessible entrance. This drop box will provide touchless returns for patrons. Our usual drop box will remain closed. As always, no late charges will be assessed for items checked in after their due date.
Materials can be picked up from the Library via a safe, touchless option we’re calling curbside pickup. Patrons can request items by phone, email, or thru the online catalog.
Two ways to request an item
- Request specific titles using the online catalog
- Phone the library and speak to the librarian during open hours.
Items can be collected from the curbside window on our front porch. Just press the doorbell on the window when you arrive and we’ll be happy to assist you.
If you have a broad request, don’t be afraid to let us know! We are happy to pull an assortment of books based on your guidance of genres you like, authors you have enjoyed, or details you prefer to steer clear of.

Curbside Pickup & Browsing Hours
Please know the safety for our staff and patrons is of the utmost importance to us. In order to comply with state guidelines for businesses, everyone entering the Library who is not yet fully vaccinated is required to wear a mask. We have hand sanitizer readily available at all work stations and, of course, are encouraging frequent hand washing. We are frequently cleaning ‘high touch’ surfaces like door handles, phones, and light switches and continuing to routinely clean and sanitize our library. We appreciate all of the concern and support our patrons have given to library staff during this difficult time.
Digital Resources and Online Programming
During the COVID-19 crisis, the Interlaken Public Library has been working diligently to provide online programs and digital resources to our patrons. Please continue to take advantage of these opportunities as we move forward with our phased reopening. Look for online programs on the library’s Facebook page. Checkout eBooks and eAudio titles on Libby. The library has a wide range of services you can access from home. If you do not have a library card, you can sign up for one to access digital services.
