Harbor-Topky Library Reopening for Holds

The Harbor-Topky Memorial Library will reopen on Monday, May 18th, at 10 a.m. for non-contact hold pickup. The library building will not be open to the public. Patrons may pickup existing holds, call the circulation desk to place holds, or place holds online through the library catalog. The library will notify patrons via phone when their holds are available. When patrons arrive at the library, they can call the front desk and a staff member will bring the holds to the patron's trunk.

The library will be open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., then reopen 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. The library will be closed between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. for disinfecting.
