Zelie Library's Contactless Curbside Pickup service will continue for now.  To requests materials (books, DVDs, etc.) to pick up outside of the Library so that you don't have to come in-- simply call 724-452-9330, or place your requests online by logging into your Zelienople Area Public Library's patron account at .  Use the barcode number on the back of your Zelie Library card.  The Library will call you when your requested items are ready for you to pick up.   When you decide to come to the Library to pick up your requested items, you will need to call the Library 15 minutes prior to your arrival, and we will get the items ready and placed outside for you to pickup.
