Deliver choice and convenience.

CapiraCurbside empowers your library to easily connect users with physical library materials without the need to enter the building, which extends your library services. This mobile solution seamlessly integrates with your ILS and lets you communicate with users about when materials are ready and how they can pick them up, just like they’re used to with grocery and restaurant pickup solutions.
