Get Your West Side Stories!!

We now have a fancy new SmartLocker at the 6th street Hy-Vee location thanks to a generous grant from US Bank! It’s a new service, so here’s some pointers that will help make the process a little easier. If you have any questions, just give us a call at 785-843-3833!

Select the “SmartLocker at Hy-Vee Sixth” option for your hold pick-up location. If you don’t see this option, turn off your single-click holds preference.

You will get an email alerting you to pick up your items. Just like holding an item for pick-up at the library location, or checking out any item, your account will need to be up-to-date, and in good standing.

When you pick your items up, follow these steps to open your locker, or lockers.

  • Scan your Library Card
  • Enter your pin number
  • Select the locker you want to open (if you have more than one)
  • The locker number is next to the title of the items it contains
  • Select Open Selected Lockers, or Open All
  • Your locker or lockers will open and you can take your stuff home

Thanks again to US Bank for making this fantastic new service possible!

    Hey, just a heads up on the book locker hours at HyVee. I’m bad. I just assumed the hours were 24/7. The hours are good just not 24/7. The lockers are located between 2 sets of entrance doors on the West side. So when they are locked from 8:30 pm to 6 am you can not use the book lockers. Very workable hours but I wasn’t aware of the hours.

    Very fun to use them and a good location! It’s a good addition to our library that continues to come up with new ideas, good service and a great crew! Thank you!
