Email hold pickup notices will be sent automatically, starting Wednesday, July 29, for items to be picked up at Blackstone Library. This will be in conjunction with our contactless pick-up service. The following procedures apply to patrons who have email addresses in their library accounts:
When you get an email hold pick-up notice from Blackstone Library, please call the Circulation Desk at 203-488-1441 x315 as soon as possible to schedule a contactless pick-up time. Circulation staff are scheduling pick-up times in half-hour increments between 10 a.m.–12 noon, 2-4 p.m., and during our evening hours, from 5-7 p.m. It is important that patrons who receive email hold notices call us as soon as possible to schedule a pickup time due to the high volume of requested hold items we are receiving on a daily basis.
If you do not have an email address in your library account, we will call you to schedule a contactless pick-up time. Circulation staff are scheduling pick-up times in half-hour increments between 10 a.m.–12 noon, 2-4 p.m., and during our evening hours, from 5-7 p.m.
To make an appointment to use a computer or fax service, please call the Reference department at 203-488-1441 extension 318. Reservations are accepted up to one day in advance. Printing, scanning and faxing is also available. You can pay for prints or faxes with exact change, check, or credit card. Read more…
Our book (and audiovisual) drop located in the back of the library is open for returns. Please remember that any items returned will be quarantined for four days and will remain on your library account until the items are checked in. We are not charging any overdue fines at this time.
Since May 20, the library has been offering no-contact pickup of library materials. At this time, we are offering this service during scheduled appointment times.
Once we fill your hold request, you will be contacted by a staff member with a time slot for pickup.
Please do not come to the library for pickup until you have been called and have an appointment for a specific day and time.
