Hold Pickup Email Notices Will Resume July 29

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.
