Click and Collect service

Click and Collect is a free, contactless way to pick up your library materials including books, DVDs and magazines. The service is available from all City of Moreton Bay libraries and our friendly library staff will bring your items to your car or a pick-up point near the library entrance. You can request items:

If it’s your first time using the Click and Collect service on the app, follow our easy step-by-step guide below. You will need to have the myMBRL app installed on your phone to use the Click and Collect service.

Step 1

Visit your ‘My Account’ section and select ‘Reservations’. Then select the books you would like to collect. Reserved books that are ready to collect will have the ‘Available - ready for pickup status’ attached to them. Tap the dark green button that says ‘Click & Collect’ to get started.

The Click and Collect feature will only work during library opening hours and if a library staff member is available.

Step 2

You will be taken to a screen where you will be able to see the items you are collecting and which library you are picking them up from.

Tap the bright green ‘I’m on my way’ button once you are ready to collect your order.

Step 3

At this stage, we’ll need to know when you’ll arrive so that we can start preparing your items. You have two options for this:

  1. Tapping the ‘I’m on my way’ button lets us know roughly when you will arrive. Note that for privacy reasons, this feature does not reveal your exact location to us in any way, only your scheduled estimated time of arrival (ETA).
  2. You can also provide us with a rough estimate of how long it will take for you to arrive. We recommend this method as it is the simplest way to let us know.

Finally, tap the bright green ‘I’m here!’ button and we will deliver the books to you.

Step 4

A chat window will also pop up so you can talk directly to friendly library staff and let them know exactly where you are.

For example, if you want books delivered to your car, let staff know your car colour and how close to the Click and Collect sign you parked, so that they can identify your vehicle easily.

Step 5

Once you’ve collected your book, press the bright green ‘Done - I have my items’ button. Happy reading!
