Revisions to Service

Updated 4/5/21

We are proud to announce that we are ready to allow patrons back into the Library. Beginning April 5th, holds pickup will now be back inside the Library. As before, adult and teen holds can be picked up at our Main Circulation desk, while Children’s holds can be picked up in the Jane Gray Dustan Children’s Room. Patrons will be allowed to pick up museum passes on hold in the Reference room too. Additionally, we’ll be offering 45-minute computer appointments, including the use of the printers and photocopiers. You can learn more about that here.

Everyone must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth when they are in the building and maintain 6 feet of distance with others. This is non-negotiable. If you are unable to wear a mask for health reasons, we completely understand, and in those cases we’ll be willing to serve you outside of the Library. For anyone unwilling to comply with the mask protocol, we’ll be calling the Belmont Police Department to come down and help educate citizens on the importance of this town wide mandate. 

Pickup and computer use hours are as follows:

  • Monday – Wednesday 9:00am – 6:00pm 
  • Thursday 11:00am – 6:00pm 
  • Friday and Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm

Available virtually 24/7/365: We will continue to offer our digital library from the comfort of your home. Our Reference Librarians will be available via live chat, email, and phone to help you with reference questions during operating hours. We will continue to issue museum passes for those institutions that are open. 

Don’t forget, we also are offering a slate of online programs via Zoom, which are free to all. This month we are featuring the 2nd and final month of our Community Read “Better through books: Healing community together.” For this final month of the program, we’ll focus on wellness as part of our overarching theme on healing. 

Kind regards, 

Peter J. Struzziero
Library Director
