HOW WILL CURBSIDE PICKUP WORK?

  • Suffield residents with a valid library card may place holds on items from our library via the online KML catalog at suffield.biblio.org, email ref@suffield-library.org, or phone 860-668-3896. 
  • Library patrons may request up to 5 items (books, DVDs, etc.). All requests must be made before pick-up.
  • After placing your hold, a KML staff member will call you when it is ready for pick up and schedule a pickup time. Items will be checked out on your pickup date. Standard lending periods apply. 
  • When picking up, pull into the designated parking area and call the library to let us know you are downstairs waiting for your pickup.
  • Please do not get out of your vehicle. KML Staff will take the bagged items outside and place them on a table/cart that will be located under the overhang at the front entrance.
  • Staff will go back inside. Once staff is inside the library, you may get out of your vehicle and retrieve your bagged items.
  • All items must be returned into the Book Drop box. 
  • Patrons will not be permitted to enter the building. 

Please click here for instructions on how to place a hold through the online catalog.

All returned items are placed in quarantine for one week before being checked in. All staff wear masks & gloves per CDC Guidelines. 

Please note: We will do our very best to honor requests. We will be unable to accommodate requests for items from any other libraries at this time.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you!
