Woonsocket Harris Library offering curbside pickup

WOONSOCKET – The Woonsocket Harris Public Library, 303 Clinton St., has begun contactless curbside pickup.

While the library remains closed to the public until further notice, Ocean State Library card holders may now place up to five item system-wide holds by calling the library or by using an online form. Delivery for system-wide holds will be delayed, as the delivery service and some libraries are working with limited staff and hours of operation.

To get books into the hands of our readers sooner, the library has ways that patrons can request items for contactless curbside pickup by appointment only. Visit the online catalog listed at http://catalog.oslri.net/ and search for up to five available items. Patrons may request any combination of books, DVDs, audiobooks, and music CD (limit of 3 items per media type).

There are two ways to request materials. The first is online at https://tinyurl.com/WoonsocketLibraryRequestForm . The second method is to call and speak directly with a librarian. Call 401-767-4124 for adult item requests, 401-767-4122 for children’s item requests, and 401-767-4132 for teen item requests.

Library staff can also be reached by email. For questions for adults, email Reference@woonsocketlibrary.org, for teen questions use email Teens@woonsocketlibary.org and for children’s questions send to email Childrens@woonsocketlibrary.org. Email Library administration using the website contact form at https://woonsocketlibrary.org/contact/.

Staff will call patrons when the request is filled to arrange for a contactless, curbside pickup appointment. All items are sanitized and strict health guidelines are followed. Staff are working Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit https://woonsocketlibrary.org/contactless-curbside-pick-up/ .
