The Manchester-by-the-Sea Public Library will continue to offer curbside pickup during open hours for our patrons for the foreseeable future. 

  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.
  2. Once your items become available you will be notified either electronically or by a Library staff member. You may then pick up your requests only during Curbside hours. If the above times do not work for you, please contact the Manchester Public Library staff at 978-526-7711 or send an email.
  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 Library at 978-526-7711 to alert Library staff of your arrival.

Manchester Public Library staff will be happy to provide alternate recommendations based on your preferences.


The Manchester Public Library staff are happy to help answer your questions! You are welcome to call the library at 978-526-7711 or contact us by email.
