“Curbside pick up starting 3/18/20
CURBSIDE PICKUP DETAILS:
**PLEASE READ EVERYTHING BEFORE PLACING REQUESTS**
Starting tomorrow, March 17th, we are excited to offer curbside pickup service to Westborough residents for as long as we are permitted to do so per the Board of Health. Please be patient with us as we launch this program as it is new to all of us and we are sure to experience growing pains along the way. Also note that the pick up hours or this service in general could change/end at any time.
There is no interlibrary loan service at this time. Any specific item requests must be items that are in our building now and listed as ‘Available’.
You may request that our staff put together things based on your interests instead of specific titles.
If you plan to pick your titles, when searching the catalog (https://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home?loc=135) please ensure you are only searching WESTBOROUGH items. We have no access to other collections at this time.
Using the forms linked below (one is for adults/teens, one is for children), make your requests. DO NOT PLACE HOLDS ON THE ITEMS THROUGH THE CATALOG. This is not the system we can use at this time.
You may also call us and we can help place the requests with you over the phone. If you had hold items here already and were notified, call us to arrange pickup.
Once you’ve submitted your requests, YOU MUST WAIT FOR CONFIRMATION from us before heading out. You will get a call and/or e-mail. Based on the volume of requests, it may take longer than a day to have your item prepared. When you get the notification that your request is ready, here are the pickup times:
Monday-Thursday: 10AM-12PM or 3PM-5PM
All requests will be sealed in a plastic bag and sorted inside the library. To pick up your items, you must pull up in front of the Library on West Main Street. Park as close to the tent as you are able. In the tent there is a small table. Call the library when you arrive (508-366-3050) and we will bring the items out to the TABLE. Do not get out of your car until the staff member is back inside. Then you may retrieve your item(s). Please confirm the name is correct on the item(s) and enjoy! This system allows for no interaction for you with staff, and vice versa.
These measures may seem overly cautious, but they are the measures needed to respect the virus but still offer access to physical items.
