Curbside Pickup & Groton Delivery

• If it’s available in the MVLC Catalog, it's available to you!

If you know what you'd like, simply login to our catalog and place a hold.

• When your items are ready, we'll send a notice by the method you indicated (email, text, or phone). You will have 10 days to pick them up via Curbside Pickup.

CURBSIDE PICKUP HOURS: 10 am - 4 pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

• Please pull into a parking space, call 978-448-1167, and wait for a staff member to retrieve your holds and check them out to you. (To shorten the wait, call ahead of your arrival and we will have them ready for you!) Please wait until the staff member has moved at least 6 feet away from the cart before moving to pickup your bag. Thank you.

• Continue to return library materials in one of our 4 exterior book drops. They will be checked in without penalty after 4 days of quarantine.

• If you need help placing holds, arranging home delivery in Groton, or would prefer to have a staff member assist you: call Reference at 978-448-8000.
