COVID-19 ("Coronavirus") Updates

Announcing Plaistow Library Reopening: Phase 2 Begins July 6!

On June 1, we began Phase 1 of our reopening plan by unlocking our book drop and offering curbside service. Today, we are pleased to announce that we will enter Phase 2 and reopen our doors to the public, on a limited basis, starting on Monday, July 6th, at 9AM. 

First, we must emphasize that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a clear and present threat to the health of our staff, our patrons, and the community at large; therefore, we have implemented systems, guidelines, and protocols to help protect us all, including:
  • face-masks and physical distancing for all in-library visitors
  • maximum occupancy of 20 people at a time
  • a daily limit of 1 hr 45 min. in the building per person
  • basic cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces every 2 hrs
Before entering the building, please return all borrowed items directly to the book drop for a 3-day quarantine. 

For your convenience, curbside service will remain an option for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned for additional details and we look forward to seeing you soon!
Curbside Service is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Appointments are available between 10AM and 4:15PM, Monday through Friday, and Saturday 10AM-12:30PM.
1. Place a hold (here's how) on the item in our catalog. 2. Schedule a time for contactless pickup by the front door. (Kimball & Sandown items should be picked up at those libraries. Please contact those libraries at 362-5234 and 887-3428, respectively, with questions about their pickup procedures.)

Our digital resources are open 24x7! To request a virtual library card from home, click here.

    We are now opening our drop-box for returns. We will quarantine and/or clean these items as appropriate. Because of this process, these items may show on your account as still "checked out" for a few days after you drop them off, but they will not accrue late fees.
