MERCER COUNTY, NJ -- The Mercer County Library System is bringing curbside pick-up to the local library at a date soon to be announced. Library staff members are getting ready to take your calls and schedule a time for you to pick-up items that you have placed on hold. They also will place holds on books, DVDs and other materials.
Mercer County residents will contact their library by telephone to place their "order" with their library card ready. They will then be notified by email or phone that items are ready and can schedule a pick-up time at the local branch within five days of notification.
When arriving for Curbside Pick-up, residents must wear a mask and bring a piece of paper with your last name written on it in big letters. Then, pop the trunk or open a passenger window and a library staff member will place your items in your car. Returns will not be accepted at curbside pick-up. Please return your items in the book and AV drops.
Pick-ups will be available Monday through Friday, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Mercer County libraries also will be offering Contactless Tabletop Pick-Up. On good weather day, residents can request to pick up library materials by contactless tabletop pick-up. The items will be located in a bag with the last name on it, as well as the last four numbers of your barcode. Library visitors will be able to call and schedule a time to retrieve the bag from a table outside of the library.
