Library to start curbside pickup

Suffolk Public Library announced Tuesday it will begin offering contactless curbside pickup service on June 22.

Curbside pickup will be available at Morgan Memorial Library and North Suffolk Library between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Library cardholders must place items on hold in advance and then come to the library after they have received the text or e-mail notification letting them know their items are ready. Once they arrive at the library, customers will drive or walk up to one of the two designated spots and call the library to let staff know what spot they are in.

Library staff will then bring items out and place them on a table and indicate when the customer can approach the table to retrieve their items.

Any items customers bring back to the library must be returned to the item drops and will not be accepted on the tables.

In anticipation of this new service, library cardholders are encouraged to review their accounts and cancel any holds they no longer need. Library cardholders can place items on hold through their account online, virtual chat or by calling the library. For those without a library card, there is an option to sign up for a card online through the library’s website, www.suffolkpubliclibrary.com.
