In accordance with recommendations from State and local officials, the Library building is closed until further notice, as our community battles the novel coronavirus pandemic. All programs and events have been postponed until further notice. Please see below for information on the many Library services available to you while our building remains closed. We thank you all for your patience and support, and hope our patrons stay healthy and safe during this challenging time.
Library Introduces Curbside Pickup
We know that many of you have been waiting eagerly to check out items from the Library, and we're so pleased to now offer Curbside Pickup! Please follow
the following steps if you would like to order items from the Library:
Order Your Items
Materials can be requested online through your CLAMS account, via smartphone using the CLAMS app, or by calling the Library at (508) 398-2050 on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays between 10am-2pm. Please keep in mind that only items available at our Library will be requestable until Statewise delivery resumes.
Wait Until We Call You
We will call you when your items are ready for pickup. Requests for items will be handled on a first-come-first-serve basis. Due to work safety restrictions, expect to wait 2-3 days after placing your order. We will not be able to fulfill immediate service requests.
Pick Up Your Items
Once you have been notified via telephone that your items are available, you may pick them up on the table near the back entrance (they will be in a bag with your name on it). If the table is occupied, please wait until the previous patron has left. All patrons should be wearing face coverings when they retrieve their items.
Return Your Items
Library items can be returned in the outdoor book drop near the handicapped parking spaces. Please be aware that returned items will be put into quarantine for 3+ days and will not be checked off your account immediately. You will not be charged overdue fines.
