Visiting the Library During COVID-19

The Library is CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC until further notice

The library will be CLOSED to the public due to the increased number of positive COVID-19 cases within the community and the North Haven public schools' move to the full-remote learning model. 


The library will continue to align with the schools' schedule and cases in the community, so the reopen date IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Please check back for updates on the library's reopening to the public. 

During this time, staff will be working to answer phones and provide Grab & Go Pickups as well as Contactless Returns. Even though you can't come in and browse our books, you can ask the staff to help with your selections.  We are happy to select authors or genres that are similar to your favorites.  Just ask the the Information or Children's Librarians for help!

Thank you for your continued patience during these difficult and ever-changing times.

Grab & Go Pickups & Contactless Returns AVAILABLE


For the Contactless Grab & Go Service:

  • Call the library  at least 15 minutes before your planned arrival

  • IF YOUR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE ON THE HOLD SHELF, we will check them out to you, bag them, and put them on the pickup rack in the vestibule within approximately 15 minutes.

    • Please note that the library pulls holds each morning for items located in the North Haven library.

    • Please allow a minimum of 24 hours for staff to pull holds.

PLEASE NOTE for Grab & Gos:

  • Some holds are filled by other libraries within the LION consortium and may not be available right away.

  • To ensure that you will have items to pick up, please wait for notification from the North Haven library that your items are available. 

  • After you receive notification that your holds are available, you still need to call the library before coming to pick up your holds.
