Curbside Pick-Up to begin at the Wareham Free Library
The Wareham Free Library is now offering curbside pickup at the main library, 59 Marion Rd., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Currently, patrons can only check out items owned by the library. Books can be requested through the SAILS mobile app; over the phone at 508-295-2343, ext. 1011 or 1013; or online through the library’s website at www.warehamfreelibrary.org.
When items are ready for pick-up, patrons will receive a text message, email, or phone call from the library and be asked to make a five minute appointment to pick up the items between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Patrons will be asked to give their name, library card number, and a brief description of their vehicle over the phone.
When at the library to pick up items, patrons should call the library’s fax number, 508-295-2678, to let staff know they are outside and open the trunk, rear door, or passenger side window of their vehicle. A librarian will come out and put the items in the vehicle in a single-use bag.
Patrons without vehicles or who do not have a library card should call the library to make arrangements.
Patrons can return any items currently checked out to the book drop at the main library or Spinney Branch Library, fine-free, through the end of July. Items will be quarantined for three days upon their return.All items checked out on or before March 1 have had their due dates extended to July 31.
While the Wareham Free Library building remains closed to the public, staff are on hand to help patrons with item recommendations, assistance using Libby/Overdrive, and aid accessing numerous free databases.
