What is Curbside Pick-Up?

Curbside Pick-Up allows patrons to pick up library materials that have been placed on hold. The library has a designated Curbside Pickup Location clearly marked by signage for service during the closure.

When can I pick up items using Curbside Service?

Curbside Service is available by appointment only at this time.

How do I use the Curbside Service?

Place items on hold using the library’s online card catalog or contact the library at 497-3003. If you do not remember your login info, please contact us and we will get that information to you. Library staff will prepare your items for pickup and contact you to arrange a pick-up time. A number will be assigned to you which will coincide with the number on your pickup package. Go to the Library’s designated Curbside Pickup Location. When you arrive at the Library’s Pickup Location, please abide by social distancing protocols. If there is already someone in the area of the pickup location, please remain in your vehicle until it is your turn.

How do I return library materials?

You may return your Library materials using the exterior book drop.

What safeguards are in place with regard to books being reissued?

Books picked up using Curbside Service will not have been used by another patron for at least a week. In order to safeguard the health of patrons and staff, Peabody Memorial Library is quarantining all items for 7 days after their return.

Tickets are 1 for $1 or 6 for $5.

You can contact the library at 497-3003 to purchase your tickets.
