Now you can retrieve your holds!


All Torrance Library Locations are offering "Curbside" Holds Pick Up

Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


You can now pick up holds on circulating items at Torrance Public Library!

First, place your hold. You may do so online once you log into your account or call the library directly. We are not placing holds in person at this time.

When your materials are ready for pick up, library staff will call you to retrieve them. When you come to the library, please wear a face covering and maintain social distance of 6 feet from the library patrons and staff near you. Please bring your library card or picture identification.

When you arrive, please place your library card or identification on the library table. Staff will then retrieve your items and set them down on the table for you to pick up.

Enjoy your books!


During COVID19, please note the following:
  • All holds are free, and we are not charging late fees at this time.
  • The library is currently not accepting any form of payment.
