Library in a Box

Library in a boxPick up your library materials at a location near you!

Simply place your holds on a special library card and have your items delivered to a Library in a Box at one of the following locations:

Walmart, 1024 N Main Street, Nicholasville

Kroger, 200 E Brannon Road, Nicholasville

United Bank, 106 S Lexington Avenue, Wilmore

Get Started

To sign up for a Library in a Box card, visit the front desk at your next trip to the library. You can then begin placing holds either in person, via the online catalog or over the phone. We are currently able to deliver books, books on CD, nonfiction DVDs, music CDs, and Playaways.

How It Works

When the items become available, we will deliver them to your chosen location, and you will be notified. To retrieve the items out of the box, you will be prompted to enter your library card number. The box which holds your materials will then pop open. The items are already checked out to you, and the due date can be found on the receipt that is attached.

At each Library in a Box location, you will also find book drops for returning the materials to the library.


We deliver holds and empty book drops as follows:

Walmart: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Brannon: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Wilmore: Monday (book drop pick-up only), Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday
