How it Works:    Order > Schedule Appointment > Pickup


Step 1.  Request Books, DVD's, CD's and other materials by using one of the following methods:  

  • Place your holds online using the RCLS Catalog.  Right now, you will be limited to items owned by Nanuet Public Library. 
  • Call Reference Staff to get help placing holds.  For Adult/Teen materials, call 845-623-4281 ext. 128.  For Children's materials, call 845-623-4281 ext. 112.  A Librarian will help you select materials, even if you don't know exactly what you want.  
  • Order a Grab Bag.  Our Grab Bag Service allows you to fill out a brief form and select categories and genres that interest you.  A Librarian will then put together a specially-curated selection of Books, Movies or Music for you. It's an easy and fun way to discover something new!


Step 2.  A Library Staff member will contact you to set up a time for pickup.  Pickup is available:

           Monday - Thursday  11am - 7:30pm 

           Friday - Saturday  11am - 3:30pm   


Step 3.  After arriving at the Library at your appointment time, call the Library at 845-623-4281 ext. 110 from your car.  If you do not have a cell phone, you should call the Library before you leave your house.  Give us a description of your car when you call.  Either open your trunk (preferred) or one of your back windows, return to your car, and wait for Library staff to deliver your items.  Please hold up your Library Card with your windows closed when staff arrives.  If you have items to return, please park after getting your books and walk the books to the book drop, being mindful of other people.  

Items returned in the Book Drop will remain on your account for up to 7 days for quarantining.  They will be checked in FINE FREE.    


Do you need accommodations?  Please call us at 845-623-4281 to discuss your needs.

Fine-Free 2020.  In order to ease just a small portion of the stress and burden caused by the current pandemic, Nanuet Public LIbrary will not charge overdue fines for library materials returned during the remainder of the calendar year 2020.  This waiver applies to overdue fines on library materials such as books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and Games.  Overdue fines still apply to more expensive items such as museum passes and technology.  Fees for damaged or lost materials still apply.  Fines and fees accrued on previously returned materials still apply.
