Curbside Pick Up -- detailed instructions

All cardholders are invited to make an appointment to pick up items using our safe, convenient Curbside Pickup service. This is perfect for getting holds, printing, magazines or even selections that the library staff will put together for you. Please call or email ahead of time so we can get everything ready for you.
Our curbside hours are:
  • Monday 11 am - 3 pm
  • Tuesday 1 - 5 pm
  • Wednesday 11 am - 3 pm
  • Thursday 11 am - 1 pm, 4 - 7 pm
  • Friday 11 am - 3 pm
  • Saturday 11 am - 2 pm
When you receive a notification that your holds are available for pick up, call the library to set a pickup appointment. The item will be checked out to you already. Please return it at your earliest convenience.

Detailed instructions are below.


Please return items at your earliest convenience to the outdoor book and media return drops.
Due to the library building's sturdy walls, these return drops jam easily. Be sure to deposit one item at a time and wait to hear it drop before depositing the next items. Large or thick items can be returned at curbside. Just let us know that you are leaving them.

Items will not be checked in right away. All library items are being quarantined for three to four days at each point in the process. This is the current recommendation for safe handling of library materials.
You may receive an automated notice or charges on your library card account. This is happening system-wide as libraries are adding back services and holds are placed among all the libraries. Most issues will resolve themselves in time. We will help if the situation does not resolve.

Due to all these changes, we are not following due dates or charging fines.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or 914-941-7072. Thank you for helping us navigate these service changes. We hope that you enjoy this safe and convenient service!
