Libraries' Grab & Go Pick-Up Service

While the Libraries have many resources available online, you can now also borrow from our physical collection for pick up at any of Centennial’s five campuses. 

Use our Grab & Go service to borrow items from our print and Emerging Technology collections.

Watch this video to see how it works:


Borrowing

  1. Place a hold
    Search for an item you want on the 
    Library website and place a hold.
  2. Book an appointment     
    Once your item is available for pick-up, you will receive a confirmation to your myCentennial email address including a link to our online booking system to confirm a pick-up date & time.  Pick-ups will be by scheduled appointment only.
     
  3. Pick up your items  
     On the date of your appointment, don’t forget to check the campus entry requirements!  When you arrive, head to the designated Library Grab & Go station on campus.

Looking for your textbook?
Not all textbooks are available through the library.
This video demonstrates how to check if the library has your textbook.

Mailed Delivery

Not able to pick up your items? The library is now piloting a mailed delivery service through Canada Post. Learn more about this new service.
