The Library Reopens for Book Returns and Pickups

Beginning Monday, June 22, the Library will be open 7 days a week for sidewalk pickups and returns, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Books can be returned during any open hours.

Place holds on books using our catalog, by emailing requests@nysoclib.org, or by calling 212.288.690 x211.

Please wait to come visit us until you hear from us that your books are ready to be picked up.

On or after your assigned pickup date, stop by during our open hours. Your books will be bagged up with your name just outside or just inside the Library's doors.

Masks are required, and sidewalk markers will help you maintain a six-foot social distance.

If you are sick or in a vulnerable category, please stay home and take care of yourself. Reach out to us and we will make arrangements to pick up and/or deliver your books.

For more details, see this recent message from the Head Librarian.

We can't wait to see you!
