What to Know Before You Arrive
Face coverings. Face coverings are no longer mandatory. We continue to encourage masking, especially in the Children’s Room or if you have any cold- or flu-like symptoms. Masks are required at programs with 15 or more attendees.
Kindly sanitize. Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the library.
Be respectful. Your neighbors may have a different comfort level regarding masking and/or social distancing than you. Please respect the boundaries of others.
In-person programs are being offered. Little Wigglers Storytime and ESL Conversation Group are being held in person. To stay up-to-date on our programming, check out our calendar, Facebook page, Instagram account, or sign up for emails from the library.
Curbside pickup is available. We will deliver requested items to you outside. Call 201-768-8714 to let us know you’ve arrived. Please be patient with us as we have limited staffing at this time. Requests can be made through bccls.org, by calling us at 201-768-8714, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more about curbside pickup here.
Self checkout. Patrons can download the meeScan app to their phones or other devices to independently checkout library materials. The library has also installed a self checkout station in the main reading room for patrons who do not have or do not wish to use their smart phone. We encourage patrons to take advantage of this new service so as to minimize physical interaction with staff. Learn more about meeScan here.
We encourage patrons to take advantage of our wireless printing service. Patrons do not need to be in the library to submit a document to print. Visit demarestlibrary.org/print and upload the document from home, and then visit the library to pay for and pick up your printouts.
We’re here to help. If you have a question or run into a problem, call us at 201-768-8714 or email us at email@example.com. Whether your library card is expiring or you’re not sure what to read next, we’ll help you figure it out!physically do for you, we’ll do our best to fix the situation.
