While carefully observing COVID-19 health and safety guidelines determined by New York State, the Pittsford Community Library will slowly resume some services for physical materials. Services will be phased back in gradually to ensure the safety of Library staff and community members.
 
The Library’s book drop is now open. Returned materials will be handled minimally before being quarantined for at least three days. If you return materials, expect a processing delay of 3-5 business days. The due date for all items remains set for June 29.
 
The Friends of Pittsford Community Library is not yet taking book donations. Please continue to hold on to items you wish to donate. Please do not put donations in the book drop.
 
A contactless curbside service is now underway. Details are below and are also can be found at the Library's home resources page www.bit.ly/your-library-at-home.
