Curbside Pickup Service

The Middleborough Public Library is now offering curbside pickup by appointment only.

Place holds for items you’d like to request by logging into your account through the SAILS catalog:

Book Bundles Programs

Adult "Library to Go"
NEW! Now adults can enjoy the convenience of our book bundle service with our new "Library To Go" program. Use this "menu" to request a book bundle consisting of three books and one DVD chosen from the adult collection based on your order. Choose from among themed bundles such as "Best Sellers," History Makers" (biography/memoir), or "You Can't Make This Stuff Up' (nonfiction.)

You can pick up your bundle at the Main Desk. Or if you prefer, you can request curbside pickup and can schedule a time at your convenience. 

Children's Book Bundles
Patrons can now request bundles of children's books. If you don't have certain titles in mind, but want to borrow some books about a certain subject. Our librarians can together some children's books for you. Fill out the "book bundles" form, and we will be in touch. 

You also may phone or email us your material requests.

Once your items are ready, you will be called or texted to schedule your pickup.

NEW! You may now schedule and adjust your own curbside appointments via the Library's curbside appointment portal. To login into the portal, you will use your library card and password for the SAILS catalog. You may only make an appointment once your materials are waiting to be picked up.

The pickup hours by appointment only are:

    • Mondays through Thursdays, 10am to 12pm; 4 to 6pm
    • Saturdays, 10am to 2pm
