Library Phase 3 Re-Opening

Library Phase 3 Re-Opening:  FAQs

Following the guidelines of the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioner, the library will implement Phase 3 Reopening Plans starting on Wednesday, September 16. Per the Governor’s order, all patrons over the age of two will be required to wear masks while in the library. At the Main Library, all patrons will have their temperature scanned upon entry.  People will also be asked to use hand sanitizer upon entering. Social distancing protocols are required.

Please continue to use the book drop at the Main Library and at the Manomet Branch to return all items. If jammed, please try again another time.  DO NOT leave items outside.

See the FAQ’s below for a complete description of the services which we are currently able to offer.  Please note:  at this time we are NOT able to offer the public use of our meeting rooms, most seating, children’s and teens’ games and toys, and in-person technology assistance (including personal devices as well as on the public computers). We remain closed on Sundays.

Curbside holds pickup will continue but with NEW hours (subject to change) as of Wednesday, September 16.
Main Library: Monday – Friday 10am – 12 noon and Saturday 10am – 12 noon and 2pm -4pm
Branch: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday 9am – 4pm and Thursday 1pm – 4pm.  For details, please follow this link.

You may also come inside to pick up your available holds during the hours when we are open for appointments.  If you are simply picking up your items at the Circulation Desk, no appointment is necessary but we do ask that you check in with the greeter at the front door before proceeding through the lobby.  All other visitors must make an appointment – follow this link to reserve a time slot.
