Curbside Service

Updated 5/7/2020

Now that stage 1 of Idaho’s plan for reopening has begun, the Idaho Falls Public Library is open to the public. Our temporary curbside hours have ended and we have resumed our normal hours of operation (click here for details).

The Idaho Falls Library will continue to offer curbside pickup to any who request it. This now includes pulling books that are not on hold (please call ahead to give us time to pull the books).

We are still personally contacting patrons when their holds are ready for pickup. If you think you might have missed a phone call about this, you are welcome to call 208-612-8460 and ask.


The Iona branch library is not yet open to the public, but is offering curbside hold pickup. Please note:

  1. Curbside in Iona is for holds only.
  2. Mishelle or Sharon will call when your holds are ready for pickup.
  3. When you arrive, stay in your car and call 208-523-2358 to tell us you are here.
  4. Curbside pickup hours in Iona are Monday to Saturday, 2pm – 6pm
