Curbside Pickup

Starting Thursday June 18 the Woodbridge Main Library will begin curbside pickup of books which you would traditionally go inside to borrow. So how will it work?

  • If you have had items on hold when the libraries closed in mid-March, you will hear from the library that they are ready along with instructions for how and when to collect what you ordered.

  • If you want a particular title or subject call the Main Library Monday-Friday 10-5 at 732-634-4450 then press 5.

  • At this time, per pick-up, you are limited to 5 adult books, young adult books or J books, per library card. Picture books and easy readers are limited to 10 per card.

  • Books will be placed in a Blue Library Bag. When returning your books please return them in the same bag.

Please Note: For the safety of library staff and patrons, returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours per CDC guidelines before being processed for return to the collection. They will not be cleared from the account until that time.
