As of Monday, June 15, 2020, Curbside Pickup Now Available!
We’re excited to offer this new service!
Please note that during this part of the yellow phase, the buildings remain closed to the public.
At this time, we are happy to be able to provide curbside pickup, the first step in providing more access to the library for you!
We are unsure when the buildings will be available for computer use & browsing. We appreciate your patience while we work towards solutions to keep us all as safe as possible.
Please note our modified hours:
Contact staff via:
reference chat through tredyffrinlibraries.org (M-F 10 am – 5 pm by selecting the text box in the lower right hand corner of this page)
speak with a staff member during modified hours or leave a message by calling our phone lines.
Hours for both locations are:
Monday: 11 am – 7 pm, Tuesday: 11 am – 5 pm, Wednesday: 11 am – 7 pm, Thursday: 11 am – 5 pm, Friday: 9 am – 3 pm & Saturday, 10 am – 2 pm. Closed Sundays.
Reserve Library Materials
You can place items on hold through our online catalog
or via the CCLS App, available on Apple & Android devices.
You can also call the library during modified hours to place your holds.
Make sure all your items are going to the library of your choice. You will be unable to schedule your pickup until your holds lists “READY FOR PICKUP”
Schedule your pickup
When your items are ready, you will receive an email that includes a link to select an available pickup time.
The site will ask you for a password. Use the pin connected with your library card. If you’re unsure of your pin, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call one of the libraries during modified hours & staff can reset & guide you through creating your new pin.
Pick Up Your Holds
At the designated time, you will be able to find your items waiting for you by the front entrance of the library you selected for your pickup.
Materials will be packaged in brown paper bags and labeled with your first name & last initial.
Practice Social Distancing
If there is another patron collecting their pickup, or a staff member restocking the pickup area, please wait until they have moved away before you approach the building.
Please read and observe directions on posted signs.
Take your books home!
The items you pick up will already be checked out to your account, so all you need to do is take them home & enjoy your books! Don’t forget to sign up for summer reading
You may use the book drops to return items too. There will also be a place by the pickup area for you to leave returns. Please note, all returned items are being quarantined & will not be checked in for 3 days, remaining on your account. Don’t worry, you won’t get fined for any returned items that are quarantined.
Thank you for your Patience!
We are all in this together & we can’t tell you how much we appreciate your patience as we learn this new system.
Please call with any questions you may have.
