The Patron Catalog is Open & Deliveries Have Resumed!

Week three of curbside service starts with some good news! MHLS has resumed deliveries between libraries Monday-Friday and patrons can place holds in our OPAC (Online Patron Catalog)
Woo Hoo!! We’re excited to get these library items moving again!

Items are being quarantined before check-in, so the wait times will be a little longer than usual, but we want to keep our patrons & staff safe.

Have a wonderful day!


Curbside starts Monday, June 8th!

Mid-Hudson has not resumed deliveries between libraries just yet, so we’ll only be able to offer you items that we have here in our collection. We’ll be limiting the Dover owned check out items to 5 items, until delivery resumes.
Item returns must be placed in our book drop, and not handed to the library staff. All items we receive at the library will be quarantined for 72 hours. This includes items from Mid-Hudson once delivery resumes. Patrons will notice that items they have returned will not come off of their account right away. Items that come out of quarantine will be backdated upon check in.
We have items here that were on hold or in transit for our patrons while were were closed. We’ll be calling those patrons about them on Monday, and scheduling a pick-up.

We’ll have 3 designated ‘Curbside Pickup Parking Only’ spaces in our parking lot, with our phone number. When you arrive during the pickup hours, call the library and let us know you’re here. A staff member will come out and place your bagged items in your vehicle.

Please have patience with our library staff, as this is all new to us too, and we’re figuring out what works best as we go along. 

BTW – We’ve missed all of you! ~ DPL Staff
