Call Ahead Curbside Pick-up
How to get books! (And other items)
Once you receive notification that your item is ready, call the day you'd like to come to arrange a pick up time.
Near the side entrance, look for a bag with your name printed on it to retrieve your hold. Be advised: Face coverings must be worn while on Library property, including when picking up items from the curbside location.
When you are finished with any items, please return them in our book drop. To ensure both our staff and community’s safety, and based on recommendations from the Mid-Hudson Library System, we will be quarantining all returns for 72 hours. You may notice a delay between the time you drop off an item and the time it comes off your account. No late fines will incur.
