Curbside Pickup/Book Drop Returns end at the Loft- Restarting at the Library on 12/1

As we prepare to open the main building, contactless pickup and book drop returns have been temporarily suspended.  We will resume these services at our newly renovated home at 54 Olmsted Rd starting Tuesday, December 1st. See our Welcome Back page for a more comprehensive look at the new Library. Here’s what you need to know:

What should I do about my holds?

Starting December 1st, patrons will once again be able to place holds and borrow from our full and expanded on-site collection at 54 Olmsted Rd. Once you have received a notification that your holds are available for pick up, reserve your time slot here!

What if I need to return items?

Please hold on to your books or return them to a neighboring library. Starting December 1st, you will be able to return books at 54 Olmsted Rd. 

When can i get books again?

The Library will reopen on December 1st for book returns and contactless pickup at 54 Olmsted Rd. To provide for proper social distancing, patrons may reserve hour-long time slots to pick up their materials via the Library’s website and we will require only a three-hour advance notice for reservations (allowing for same day hold and pick up in many cases).

The Library hours for holds pickup and book returns starting December 1st are:

Monday 9:00AM – 7:00PM

Tuesday – Friday: 9:00AM – 5:00PM

Saturday 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Staff will be available by phone during these business hours and the community can continue to message the Library for reader advisory, reference services and general help at any time via email.

NO FINES! We will not charge fines during this transition phase and all due dates are extended to December 15th!
