  • In-Person Pickups:
    • Visit the Library at any time during our open hours!
    • We no longer require patrons to wear masks when visiting the Library, but support the use of reasonable precautions according to personal preference.
  • Curbside Pickups:
    • You may put books on hold either by signing into your library account via the online catalog (click here for instructions) or by calling the Library at (203) 393-2103 during open hours to request a title.
    • You will receive an automated email from the LION Consortium (becirc@lioninc.org / be – Bethany/Clark) letting you know when a book you have put on hold is available for pickup (do not reply to this alert).
    • If you would rather receive a phone call from the Library, please call during open hours or speak to a librarian while visiting in person.
    • Books available for pickup will be placed in bags labeled with your last name, which can be found on the left side of the side entrance foyer, on a table or cart.
  • Returns:
    • Feel free to come inside and return books at the the main desk!
    • You can also place returns in either of the two book drops, located to the right of the Library’s side entrance.
