Curbside Pickup:
Please call 588-6786, reserve through our catalog, or email tuttlelib@yahoo.com to request items available from the James A. Tuttle Library.  The library staff will contact you when your item is available for pick up.  We also have tax forms, seeds, NH State Park passes, snacks, summer reading logs, and toilet paper just ask.

Pickup Procedure:
Please drive up to the back entrance near the book drop, and remain in your vehicle.  If we are not outside to greet you please call 588-6786 and give the staff your name and we will give you your items in a paper bag.

Returning Items:
Please return all borrowed materials to the book drop outside of the library only.  For the safety of our staff please do not hand them any materials (library cards, books, checks).  All communication must be over the phone.

Materials Handling:
When materials are returned we quarantine the items for 72 hours.  After 72 hours we disinfect our materials with Lysol, Clorox, or Cavi disinfecting wipes and quarantine the items for another 72 hours before they are checked in and shelved.  When the items are placed on reserve we wipe them one more time with Mrs. Myers lavender cleaning solution and we place them in a paper bag for pick up. We wear clean masks and gloves while touching materials during this process.

We are not charging any late fees, or accepting donations during this time.

Although we will be taking every precaution possible, we cannot guarantee that library material is free of the COVID-19 virus. We, therefore, recommend that all borrowed library be quarantined for 4 days prior to use.

Reopening Plan
Understand that the situation is evolving, so be able to adapt as new information is released.  Library operations will move forward and back from stage to stage dependent on state and town directives and adequate staffing and supplies to operate safely.
