At this time, we are unable to offer curbside service on weekends.
Reserve items by phone: 725-5242 or online here. If the item you want to borrow is not available at Curtis, you can request it from another MINERVA library, as inter-library loan has resumed.
We will notify you when you items are ready – by email if we have on file, or by phone if we do not.
Give us a call when you arrive at the pickup area outside the Middle Street entry at 725-5242.
We will bring your items out in a bag with your last name on it, and will put it on a table in the pickup area.
