Curbside Service Hours

The library is now open for curbside services only.
Monday – Thursday from 9:30AM – 6:45PM
Friday – Saturday from 9:30 – 4:45PM

Curbside Pickup

Place holds on items through the SWAN Catalog, or contact the library using the Department Directory below.  We may only place holds and provide materials owned by the Berwyn Public Library at this time. Holds that were placed on materials from other libraries prior to March will not be cancelled, but cannot be fulfilled until inter-library deliveries resume.

Your items are not ready for pickup until Circulation staff contacts you!  At that point they will ask you to schedule a pickup appointment; appointments are preferred to retrieve items. When you arrive at the library to pick up items, pull nose-in to one of the curbside pick-up spots and let us know you’re here:

TEXT “Check In” to (708) 719-8010
CALL the library at (708) 795 8000 ext. 0

Curbside Returns

We are accepting item returns during curbside service hours in a large bin under a canopy in the parking lot. If possible, please return items in sealed plastic bags. All library materials will be quarantined in their bin for 72 hours before being checked in, and no fines will be charged for the foreseeable future.

Due to COVID-19, the library is NOT accepting donations at this time.

Book and Media Bundles

Not sure what you’re looking for? We offer themed collections of books, movies, music, and more for all ages. Ask us about our ready-made bundles, or have us create a bundle just for you. Try our “Book Match” and “Movies & Music Match” services, or select a department below to start a conversation!
