We at the Free Public Library of Hasbrouck Heights are pleased to announce our library reopening! We are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment to our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please take the time to go over all the updated guidelines and policies now in effect for those wishing to use our facilities.
We are continuing our door-side pick up service for our patron’s convenience. For those interested, please complete the following:
- Make a request for the Book, DVD, or CD you are looking for. You can do this through our BCCLS catalog, or contact us through the phone, email, or chat for help.
- Once your request has been received and the item put on hold, we will contact you to schedule a date and time for pickup.
- At your appointed date and time, come up to the pickup location located on Madison Avenue (Just before the Library’s doors). Mask(s) must be worn for the pick up.
- Verify your name. A staff member will be happy to put your requests in the trunk or on the back seat of your car.
- You can also walk up to the Stop sign to receive your materials.
A blue bin will also be available for returns. Please be aware that staff are not permitted to take items from you or put them in the bin for you in an effort to reduce cross-contamination.
