How we are operating now:
The library is currently operating curbside service only. This means that you will be able to place books on hold and once you arrive to the library, we will bring them to your car, or if weather permits, place them on the table outside for you to pick up.
To return books, please drive around the library building to the outdoor book drop and place items inside the appropriate slot.
How to place holds for pickup:
- You may place books on hold through the online catalog. When searching for items, select "More Search Options" and limit it to Chelsea Public Library. This will show you the items we have available at our branch related to your search. To place the hold, you will need your library card bar-code and four digit password (your password will be the month and day of your birth. For example: 0101 for January 1st)
- If you do not know what book you are wanting, and needing someone to brows the shelves for you, fill our this holds request form and tell us the kind of books you like to read and what you might be looking for! Please give as much information as possible.
- You are always more than welcome to call us and we will help put items on hold for you! Give us a call at 205-847-5750
We will continue to update our website and social media as changes occur.
