Contact-less Curbside Pick Up at Somers Library

For those of you missing holding a book in your hand, the Somers Library has begun offering contactless curbside pick- up for books and other items. 
 
Please call the library at 914-232-5717 between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday with your requests, or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.   Staff will contact you when the items are ready for pickup, and schedule your appointment.

Please note that the Westchester Library System is only filling holds that are at our location.  If you place a hold online and we do not own the item, it will not be sent to the Somers Library.  If you get an automated notice that your items are ready, please call to schedule and appointment.

 
It is best to have an author or type of book in mind when you call rather than a specific title. We are happy to do title checks but many of our materials are out and new book arrivals are stalled in the warehouse. If you let us know that you like mysteries or enjoy books by a particular author, the library staff will do its best to find something you like. We can provide books for all ages
 
  • Hours for curbside pickup are Monday through Friday, 10 am - 3 pm
  • When contacting the library, be sure to give us your library card number and phone number or email address.
  • Genres and authors, rather than specific titles, work best due to limited availability.
  • We are limiting checkouts to 5 per household at this time.
  • The library will contact you to schedule an appointment when your items are ready for pickup.  Please wait for us to contact you before you come to the Library.
  • When you arrive at the library parking lot, call us from your car and please stay in your vehicle. We will bring the items out to a table set up at the bottom of the walkway. After we have gone back inside, you may retrieve the items from the table. If you are walking, please stay at least 6 feet from the table.
  • There will be a bin on the table to return any items you may have out. Please only return items during our curbside hours.  Patrons will get charged for items that are left outside and get damaged outside of our curbside hours.
  • Fines should not have accrued during our closing. All materials will be checked in as fine free during our curbside opening, to ensure our patrons will not be charged.
  • Please do not be alarmed if you check your account and see material you dropped off still checked out to you; we will check items in 1 week after you drop them off to protect library staff handling the items. 
  • For the safety of the staff and patrons please maintain the safety protocols as outlined by the Governor and the CDC.
