Access Services is generally the first point of contact at Alpha Park Public Library. We work to ensure our patrons have access to the library’s collection! The Access Services Department is composed of two branches: Circulation and Technical Services.  

  • Circulation checks items in and out for patrons, answers general questions about the library’s materials, services, and policies, and also manages patron’s accounts and holds. Circulation staff also provides Curbside Delivery.   
  • Technical Services is responsible for acquiring new materials for the library, as well as cataloging those items and repairing them when necessary.  

For any questions regarding the library, your account, Interlibrary Loans, or any of the materials in the library’s collection, please contact the Circulation Desk:
