How it Works

When you receive your hold pickup notice you can call the library during business hours to schedule a curbside pickup appointment. Remember, you do not need to pick up your item the same day you receive your email. You can schedule your pick up for any available block that’s within a week of receiving your email. For example:

Jane Eyre receives her email hold notice on Monday, but she works full time as a teacher and her only free day is next week on Wednesday. Jane calls the library when she gets her email on Monday, schedules her appointment for next Wednesday, and tells her Alexa speaker to remind her to go get her books that day between 10 AM – 4 PM. Meanwhile, the librarians breathe a sigh of relief because they have scheduled an appointment a couple of days out, meaning no one has to sprint to put a bag outside.

Sound good? Okay, that’s Curbside! Remember, if you have any questions we can be reached at (508) 430-7562 ext. 1 during business hours.
