If you have a virtual card (starting with "PACREG") you will not be able to check out materials via curbside. If you want to use curbside you must have your virtual card converted. Please call (301) 699-3500 and ask for Public Services or contact us here.
Please let us know how we can best serve you by carefully filling out the Notes field on the bookings appointments page.
If follow-up is required, please book your appointment at least four (4) days in advance. Allow at least three (3) days to process bundle requests. Thanks!
