When can I pick up my materials?

When your items are ready, a librarian will contact you directly to schedule a pickup/delivery window. Due to reduced staffing in the building, it may take up to three business days for pickups/deliveries to be scheduled. Curbside pickups will be contact-free and scheduled to minimize overlap.

Can I request items from other libraries? 

Borrowing between libraries is still suspended. Only Brimfield-owned items are available for pickup at this time.

Important things you need to know:

  • Each patron with a library card (in good standing) will be allowed to check out a maximum of 5 items at this time.
  • Each patron can only have 2 brand new items¬†checked out on their card at this time.
