The Malden Public Library will offer curbside holds pickup on Saturdays, beginning September 19th and until 7 pm on Wednesdays. Curbside hold pickup means you will be asking for items either from our website or via phone. New hours will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 10-6, Wednesday from 10-7, and Saturday from 10-2.
Library staff will collect materials, contact patrons when holds are ready, and check out materials when the pickup time has been scheduled.
Follow these simple steps to pick up items:
Materials can only be returned using the library’s book drops to ensure patrons and staff safety. Returned materials will be quarantined for 72 hours before check-in, as recommended by the CDC. During the quarantine period, books will remain on the borrower’s card. For further safety, concerned patrons can avoid opening checked out materials for 24 to 72 hours after retrieving them from the library.
The Library continues to recommend the many online resources available at our website at www.maldenpubliclibrary.org, including 24/7 access to the digital library,
The library has a reopening plan in place, but no date has yet been set for the various stages in the plan.
