Curbside Borrowing Instructions

Thank you for your patience as we navigate providing safe service for everyone.

Here’s how curbside pickup works:

  • Place Items on Hold: You can place holds on Nesmith Library items and items from the other GMILCS libraries, by logging in to your account online and searching/browsing the catalog or by calling the library at 603-432-7154.
  • Notification: When your holds are ready, you will receive a notification from the library. Most patrons have email as their default notification: please contact us if you would prefer a phone call when your items are ready.
  • Pickup: After we notify you that your items are ready, you may visit the library to check out and pick up your items.
    • When you arrive in the parking lot, please call the library at (603) 432-7154 to let us know you are here.
    • Library staff will check out your materials, and place them on the curbside table, in a paper bag with your name on it.
    • Please verify that it is your package before you leave!

Returns: Please do not leave returned materials at the pickup table. All returns should be placed in the exterior book drop or brought inside to the returns cart. Your returned items will remain on your account for a brief time after you bring them back, because library staff are quarantining returned items. Please bring your returns inside if you have an item which will not fit in the book drop. We are not accepting book donations at this time.
