meeScan - our NEW curbside pickup app!
As part of the libraries long term commitment to continue curbside service beyond the pandemic, the library is introducing meeScan, a library app with curbside capacities. Through the app, you will be able to request curbside pickup and monitor progress of your curbside pickup request while staff prepares your items for you.

How Curbside Pickup Works
1. Reserve your item online
You can reserve itemsthrough our online catalog. If you cannot get online, reserves can also be placed by calling the library at 703-248-5031 (TTY 711).
2. You'll be notified when your items are available for pickup
When your items are ready - usually with 48 hours - you will receive an automated notification via email or text with instructions for Curbside Pickup. If you do not have an email address listed in your account, library staff will call to alert you.
3. Pickup your items via curbside
Once notified, you can pickup your curbside reserves at 120 N. Virginia Ave whenever the library is open. Please park in the curbside service spots located just outside the library on Virginia Ave.
When you arrive:
Open the trunk of your vehicle
Open the meeScan app and press START to notify staff you have arrived
Open the 'Pickup' tab and follow instructions in the app.
You will be able to monitor the progress of your curbside request through the app (see the image above for an example).
Staff will bring items out and place them in your trunk, keeping the interaction contactless for the safety of all!
If you cannot access the app, call 703-248-5233 for our curbside line
