Stafford Library
New and Noteworthy


Effective Monday 12/14/20 Stafford Library is closed to the public.

For the safety of our community we have temporarily changed the way we do business. You may continue to use our curbside service to pick up your requested items, see info below for hours and directions.

Curbside Pickup

Curbside pickup hours:

--Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 10:15 am-4:45 pm
--Tuesday and Thursday 10:15 am-7:45 pm
--Saturday 10:15 am-12:45 pm

• Library patrons can request up to 10 books and/or up to 5 DVDs by email, by placing holds using our online catalog, or by calling the library. Patrons will be notified when their holds are ready.

• Patrons should call the library (during the curbside hours listed above) to let us know they are in the driveway in front of the library. Patrons are to remain in their vehicles.

• Staff will take the patron's bagged items outside and place them on a cart that will be located under the overhang at the front entrance. Once staff move away from the cart, patrons can get out of their vehicle and retrieve their items.

• Use our book drops (located on either side of the main entry) to return items; do not leave them on the cart. Returned items will be quarantined before being checked in.

Accommodations can be made to provide you with simple photocopying, printing, scanning and faxing through curbside service. Call for more information.

We appreciate your cooperation and patience.
