Curbside Pickup Service Begins June 3

Thompson Free Library will offer curbside pickup service for books, movies, and other library materials beginning on Wednesday, June 3. Pickup hours will be Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday morning pickups can be arranged by appointment.

Library staff will be available Tuesdays through Fridays to provide information and assistance by phone or email. Library patrons are encouraged to use the online catalog to make requests. Contact the library if you need to set up a username and password for an online account.

Please follow these guidelines for curbside pickup:

Allow one day for requests to be processed. Same-day requests will be filled as time allows.

Call the library when you arrive, or let us know what time to expect you.

Open the trunk or a passenger-side door so that a staff member can deliver the materials safely. Please stay in your vehicle or maintain a six foot distance.

The library is also now accepting the return of borrowed materials. Please use the book drop located by the main entrance, which is open 24/7. All returned materials will be quarantined for 72 hours before being re-circulated.

Curbside service is part of the library’s phased plan for reopening safely. The library continues to offer online programs via Zoom and social media, digital resources including e-books and audiobooks, and free WiFi access outside the library building.
