While the Sharon Public Library is now open for limited patron browsing, we are continuing to offer our popular curbside delivery service as an alternative way to pick up library materials. The service will be the same as in Phase 2. For the full FAQ on our Phase 3 curbside delivery, please see our longer Q&A here.
A quick summary:
1) Place your holds online via the OCLN catalog, or by calling 781-784-1578. If you call the library, please be aware it may take a while for library staff to respond. Phone lines will be busy, and staff will be managing operations in the building simultaneously. We thank you in advance for your patience.
Don't know what to request? Use our Reader's Advisory form to request a library staff member place materials on hold for you based on your selected criteria.
2) Wait until you receive a notice that your materials are ready; then, select a time slot for curbside delivery at the library's Eventkeeper calendar.
Based on patron and staff feedback, we are reverting to the curbside pickup procedures used in Phase 2. (We apologize for any confusion this may cause.) You will be required to select a specific time for pickup of library materials.
3) Please arrive on time to your curbside delivery time. A library staff member will exit the building with your materials, and verbally confirm your identity. The library staff member will then leave your library materials on the available table. Once the library staff member has safely re-entered the building, you may exit your vehicle and retrieve your materials. They will already be checked out to you.
Please observe all social distancing requirements as you collect your materials; and make sure that you are taking the correct bag (with your name on it), as there may be more than one bag of materials on the table at times.
