Library Takeout

The Solvay Public Library will begin offering Library Takeout 7 days a week on Sunday, January 10th. Please note the following:

You can request materials by placing holds online with your library card number and PIN or call the library at 315-468-2441 between 1pm and 5 pm on Sunday, 9am and 8pm Monday-Wednesday, 9am and 5pm Thursday and Friday or 10am to 5pm Saturday.

You will be notified via email, phone or text when your hold is ready.

Wait times for holds placed online are currently longer than usual.

After you receive notification that your hold is available, please call the library at 315-468-2441 to make an appointment to pick up your holds.

Have your library card number available when you call.

Curbside service for the public will be limited to half an hour after we open, and half an hour before we close. The specific hours of curbside service will be:

  • Monday-Wednesday – 9:30AM-7:30PM
  • Thursday and Friday – 9:30AM-4:30PM
  • Saturday – 10:30AM – 4:30PM
  • Sunday – 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM

When you arrive for your Library Takeout, please call the library to let us know you have arrived. A staff member will bring your items out to the lower-level vestibule, inside the entrance off Woods Road.

Staff will have your items checked out and placed in a new bag with your receipt.

Please do NOT use library pickup areas to return items. Items must only be returned in the library book drop.

We will set up a table in the vestibule to put takeout bags with the names of patrons written on them.

Masks and photo ID are required for all library pickups.

Please adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Outdoor signage at the library will guide you through the process.

The library building remains closed to the public.

We cannot accept donations during this period.

Thank you for your patience!
