We are excited to announce we will begin offering pickup service outside the building the week of June 15! You can now place items at this library on hold through the library’s catalog online or call the library at 607-387-5623 to request books over the phone. You will be able to pick up your checked-out holds and requests at the back door of the library (parking lot side) during Grab-and-Go hours: Tuesday & Thursday 9am-Noon and Wednesday 5-8pm. Please wear a mask or face covering when picking up your items.
There is no Finger Lakes Library System delivery at this time, so please return items borrowed from UPL to us, not another library. The book drops are now open, all materials returned will go through quarantine procedures. Please use the book drops instead of trying to hand materials directly to staff during Grab-and-Go hours. To get started placing holds go to the ‘Books, Ebooks & More’ tab of our website trumansburglibrary.org and click on ‘Search the Catalog’.
Thank you for your patience and for keeping your library materials safe at home during the NY PAUSE shutdown. We look forward to seeing you and continuing to serve this wonderful community of readers!
It’s one small step towards reopening, but a very important one. Starting Tuesday morning book drops will be OPEN!
If you have a large amount to return, please consider coming on Tuesday or Thursday for Bulk Drop Off between 2-5pm.
Curbside pickup of library materials is not beginning yet, but we are hard at work behind the scenes preparing for it. THANK YOU for keeping your library materials safe at home these past months!
