The Library will be reopening on Tuesday, April 6th!
CURBSIDE PICKUP for materials that are on the shelves or have been requested from other libraries will now be available any time that the library is open. You may come inside and tell the Greeter you are here to pick up your books.
The way Curbside Pickup works is:
1. You can place a hold on an item using the SAILS e-catalog on the library website or call us at 508-384-5440 x2 with your request(s) Be sure to include your name and telephone number and library card barcode if you need to leave a message. YOU MUST HAVE YOUR LIBRARY CARD TO CHECK MATERIALS OUT AT THE TIME OF PICKUP.
2. You will get an email or text message when your item is available if that is what is on your Library Card record. If you do not have email or text you will get a phone call. Please be sure we have the correct phone number for you or we will not be able to reach you.
3. When you arrive at the Library you can now enter if you choose. OTHERWISE ring the doorbell located above the bookdrop.
4. We will get your Library card from you, check out the materials and bring your item(s) to the door.
Please be aware that materials returned or arriving from other libraries will continue to be quarantined for 7 days. If you receive an overdue notice for an item you KNOW you have returned within the last week you do not need to be concerned. Any fines applied will be reversed when the item is checked in.
