The Manchester Public Library staff are taking enhanced safety measures to provide the safest service possible for curbside pickup. Please be aware that COVID-19 can exist in any public place where people are present, and despite following recommended disinfecting guidelines, we cannot guarantee that borrowed library materials are completely free of COVID-19.

The library staff would recommend after picking up library materials to leave them untouched for up to 72 hours to ensure sufficient degradation of the COVID-19 virus.

How do I use Curbside Pickup?

  1. You can remotely request library items through the library’s Online Public Access Catalog, or call library staff at 978-526-7711. If a staff member does not answer, please leave a message with your name, phone number, and a message letting staff know you would like to place a pickup order. Also, if you need help finding titles or suggestions to request, use the Personalized Recommendation Request Forms and library staff will get back to you with possibilities for your next pick up.
  2. Once your items become available you will be notified by a library staff member. You may then pick up your requests only during Curbside hours.
  3. Once you are notified that your holds are available, drive to the library during curbside hours and park in front of the Children’s Room entrance on Church Street, adjacent to the library.
  4. Call the Manchester Public Library at 978-526-7711 to alert library staff of your arrival.
