The Library’s holds shelf is getting crowded! Due to the increase in Inter-library loans and curbside pick-up, we must be strict about honoring the 7-day holds shelf period.

The holds shelf will be cleared of expired holds daily so it will be important to make sure to pick up your items as quickly as possible. Of course we understand that there will be occasional times when this is not possible and we will be happy to make reasonable exceptions on a case by case basis. So if you’re on vacation, or a bit under the weather, please call us at 978-582-4140 to make arrangements to extend for a few extra days. Thank you for your understanding!
