The WPL offers a few options when it comes to picking up your holds. While many people are happy to come into the library to browse while they stop in to pick up their items from our open holds shelf, others don't have time to stop in to check out their items.
For those busy bees, we will be offering Vestibule pickup starting Monday, May 17th! Here's how:
Patrons can place holds on items using the library catalog, through the MLN app, or by phone at 781-786-6150.
Let us know you want to pick up your items
You will be notified via email or a phone call from staff (if there is no email address for your account) that you have items ready for pickup. Just call the circulation desk at 781-786-6150 to let us know that you want us to prepare your items. We will check out your items and package them in a paper bag. They will be placed inside the library vestibule.
Pick up your items
Simply walk into the vestibule and find the bag of items with your name on the tag. Bags are arranged alphabetically by last name. Grab your bag and go. That's it.
Items can be picked up anytime the library is open. We will leave packages that are not picked up for several days in the event you are unable to stop by on your requested day.
- While vestibule pickup is replacing our former curbside pickup service, if you are unable to come into the library, please call the circulation desk when you arrive and we will be happy to accommodate curbside delivery requests as weather and staffing allows.
Need to return items?
We are now accepting returns for all Minuteman Library Network items. Our outdoor book drop is open.
