Curbside Service

Curbside pick-up allows you to request material for later pick-up.  

For specific items, please place a hold using the library catalog, available here. Some items may have longer wait times or be unavailable, due to inter-library loan service delays. General requests, such as “any mystery by Jonathan Kellerman”, “10 picture books”, “A Harry Potter read-a-like” may be entered in the comments section of the appointments section.

Curbside pick-up will take place at the main door, which is located under the American flag. If you prefer to remain in your car, please call the library when you are in the parking lot.

When you arrive for your appointment, your material will be waiting for you. Please follow social distancing guidelines when retrieving your items. If your items are not outside, please call us at 914-231-3161 or knock on the door.

Staff members cannot accept returns. Please use the bookdrop for all returned materials.

Staff members will be handling materials wearing masks and gloves. All returned materials are quarantined for 72 hours before returning to circulation.
