Halloween Storywalk Carnegie Library
While we can’t invite you in for programs right now, we can bring the library outside, to you!

We invite parents, caregivers and anyone who loves books to dress up in their Halloween costumes and stroll along and enjoy the story, at the Carnegie Library. StoryWalk® encourages both adults and children to participate in an activity that encourages physical activity and fosters a child's interest in reading.

Each page is numbered and positioned at least 6 ft. apart. Thank you for wearing a mask if you will be closer than 6 ft. to others outside of your group.

StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and has developed with the help of Rachel Senechal, Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

We start today's themed class with the Rainbow breath...a cool wooden rainbow and mini-sayings that connect with each color about how we feel & who we are. Next we do some yoga poses that describe all the different types of weather we can experience. And todays story is about Being Present and how does the feel & look like? As, always we finish with a heart shape rock in What are you Grateful for today? Maybe today the weather conditions were your favorite and in your favorite season :) "

Please limit holds requests to 10 items per household.

STEP 2: Wait for confirmation that your items are ready for pick-up
You will be notified via email or phone when your hold is ready.

Wait times for holds placed for items owned by other libraries are currently longer than usual. We strongly suggest that you limit holds to items that are currently in our buildings to reduce wait times while the delivery service is unavailable.

STEP 3: Schedule your curbside pick-up appointment

Before you can pick up items that you’ve been notified are ready, you need to schedule a specific time slot. Call the library (phone numbers for each branch listed above) to schedule your pickup time.
This is required to pick up your items. No items will be available for pickup without a scheduled appointment.

Due to limited staffing, holds may not be available until the next day the library is open.

STEP 4: Pick up your items

After confirming your time slot, arrive at your pickup location sometime within that period, and you will find your items outside the library, checked out and ready to be picked up.
Holds will be left in labeled paper bags by the staff door, behind the library.

Please put any returns either in our book drops or the bins provided where you pick-up holds.

Returns will be quarantined for 3 days before being checked in. This means that items will remain on your account until we check them in. Due dates have been extended and in most cases fines will be waived.

Please do not attempt to enter buildings or approach staff to receive your items.

Since delivery service to and from other libraries is currently not available we ask that you only return items that are owned by the Montague Public Libraries.
