Book an Appointment with Finkelstein Memorial Library: Welcome to the Finkelstein Memorial Library Online Booking System!
For quick pickup of your holds and library cards at our Window, appointments are needed. You can even make a Window appointment during the 2 pm - 4 pm hours, Monday to Thursday, when the library building is closed for cleaning. Window appointments are highly recommended on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Currently, there is limited browsing called Grab and Go. You may also pick up your holds and library cards at the Circulation Desk during normal business hours without an appointment, but you may experience a wait. Last entry into the building is 10 minutes prior to closing. See our website for more information.
Before you make your appointment, you must have received a phone call, an email notification, a text notification, or confirmed via your online account that your holds are ready to pick up or that the online library card you requested is ready to pick up.
For online booking, you will need the name of the person who placed the hold, their library card number, and a phone number to reach you in case of last-minute library closings. The appointment should be made under the name of the person who is picking up the item. In the "Notes Field," list any additional family members whose holds you would like to pick up. For library card pickup, provide your phone number and that your appointment is for “library card pickup.”
Please make every effort to be on time to your appointment. We ask that you do not arrive more than 5 minutes or 10 minutes after your selected time.
Call the Circulation Department at (845)352-5700, ext 250, if you need to change your appointment time. If the time you prefer is taken, please call us. We may have last-minute cancellations.
Please bring your library card.
A HANDS-FREE FACE MASK MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN IN THE LIBRARY.
Thank you for your patience and stay safe!
