August 6 Update:

Contactless Pick Up is here! Start placing holds on your account! Once your items are shown as ready for pickup, you may stop by to collect them Monday-Friday from 8:30AM-4PM. Appointments are no longer necessary.

We’re now accepting returns Monday through Friday from 8:30AM-4PM at the Ground Floor/Parking Lot entrance. Returns should be placed in the blue bins outside so we can quarantine all material for 72 hours. The book drops remain closed.

Please note that due to the very high volume of materials being returned, it will take us 4-5 business days to safely check your library items in. Fines will not accrue during these days.

Staff continue to monitor email and phones daily, M-F 8:30-4, 781-314-3425 or

Need to print something? Now you can email your print job to our public printer during our contactless pickup hours. More information is available here.
