Upton Town Library offering Curbside Pickup, starting June 9!


The Upton Town Library building remains closed to the public, but starting June 9, we will be able to offer curbside pickup of library items.

To request items, please call 508-529-6272 or email mbachtol@cwmars.org.  Interlibrary loan services have not resumed, so we are limited to items in our library. 

We can loan our books, movies, audiobooks and magazines.  Because selections are limited, please have some alternate titles in mind, or tell us the types of things you like, and let us surprise you with a selection of items!

After you place a request, our staff will package the items and label them with your last name for pickup at the front of the building.   

You will be notified by phone or email when your pickup is ready.

Pickup hours are Tuesday 10am-8pm, Thursday 10am-8pm and Saturday 10am-4pm

In nice weather, we’ll have a table outside our door, in poor weather, it will be inside the vestibule.  After you receive the pickup notice, come down and take your package from the table.

Please practice social distancing and wear a mask while picking up your items.

Returns can be made in our outside dropbox.  Returned items will be held in quarantine for 72 hours before being eligible to be loaned out again.

If you have any questions about curbside pickup, ebooks, virtual storytimes, or any other library services, please call us at 508-529-6272, we are happy to be able to talk with our patrons again!

Storytime on ZOOM with Local Author

Join us on Thursday June 4 at 10:30am for a special ZOOM storytime with Upton author, Kelly Carey!  Her new book, "How Long Is Forever?", was released in April and Upton Town Library is excited to have her share it with us! 

In the story, Mason is waiting for Nana's blueberry pie and complains that it's taking forever. So Grandpa challenges him to figure out how long forever really is. Is it as long as Grandpa has had his tractor? No. As long as it took Nana to grow the roses to the top of the chimney? Not even close. After a trip around the farm to figure out the answer, Nana's pie is ready. And Mason's finally got the answer: forever is how long he'll love Nana's pie and how long he'll love Nana and Grandpa, too.

We'll share this story, sing songs, and have a craft demonstration as well.  Email Mrs. Murphy at lmurphy@cwmars.org for the ZOOM invitation link.
