Requested library materials can now be picked up via our courtyard takeout window, Monday-Saturday, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM. Just head past the book drop area out to the courtyard and you will see a friendly librarian sitting in the window! We are now returning to the “old” way of circulating requested books, which means your items will remain on hold for you until you come to check them out. As usual, we will hold your items for one week. You may place a hold online through the catalog as usual at clamsnet.org, call us at 508-548-8961, or email us at whpl_mail@clamsnet.org to request items. 

If the weather cooperates, look for our Pop-Up Library on your way to the courtyard! We’ll have carts of new books and DVDs to browse and check out. We are also happy to help you with any questions or requests you may have – just come find us in the window!

Since we can’t bring the whole library outside, we are happy to help fill any of your browsing needs in any way we can. If parents are missing being able to browse the children’s room with their kids to pick out a big stack of books for the week, let us know what your kids are interested in and we would be happy to put together a big book haul for you! For patrons of all ages, we are happy to help you find that next great read. If you’d like us to include a few “librarian picks” in with your book pickup, just ask!

The book drop is open and you are welcome to return library materials at any time. Please note, we will be quarantining materials for 1 day after they are returned, so you will see a delay between returning materials and those materials being removed from your account.

We greatly appreciate how patient and flexible our wonderful patrons have been throughout all these changes! It has been so nice to be able to see those of you who have already visited our courtyard window!
