Updates from the Fiske Public Library
Library Building Remains Closed to the Public
We are continuing to offer curbside delivery for materials that are on the shelves or have been requested from other libraries since delivery has now resumed. Curbside pickup will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 2 to 4 p.m.
The NEW BOOK LISTINGS PAGE has been updated so you can see what has been arriving while we have been closed. The procedure for requesting a book is as follows:
1. You can place a hold on an item using the SAILS e-catalog on the library website or call us at 508-384-5440 x2 with your request(s). You must include your name and telephone number and library card barcode if you call.
2. We will call you when your item is available. Please be sure we have the correct phone number for you or we will not be able to reach you.
3. When you arrive at the library during the pickup hours:
• Wait at the door if there are no other patrons waiting.
• Call to let us know you have arrived or simply ring the doorbell located above the bookdrop.
• We will bring your item(s) to the front door.
