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.
