Berlin Library offers Grab-and-Go service

July 03, 2020
BERLIN — Due to the ongoing concerns brought about by COVID-19, the Berlin Public Library will continue to be closed to the public until further notice.

For our library patrons, we are offering a Grab-and-Go service. This service is done in a contactless manner. Patrons may call/email to reserve books, DVDs, and/or magazines between 8 a.m.- 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. Once the order is placed a pick- up time will be scheduled. Items are deposited in a bin adjacent to the lower level entrance to await retrieval. Non-library patrons may sign up for this service by calling to set an appointment. Valid photo ID and proof of residency required. Please place returned items in the book drop at the front of the library or mail slot in front door for DVDs.

All Berlin residents are welcome to sign up for New Hampshire Downloadable Books (NHDB). This service allows residents to access e-books, e-magazines, and audiobooks through home computer and/or mobile devices. Please call or email with any questions.

Inter Library Loan (ILL) service is not operational at this time.

We are in the process of expanding our book catalogue for both adult and juvenile sections to include a more diverse selection of fiction, large print, young adult, and non-fiction books. Our online catalogue can be accessed via City Website Library Department, https://berlinplnh.booksys.net/opac/bpl/#menuHome or join us on Facebook where new books are highlighted daily.

We are now offering copying, faxing, and scanning services by appointment.

Access to our genealogy web databases (HeritageQuest Online and Ancestry Library) are currently available for remote use.

The Summer Reading Program (SRP) is still being developed. Please look for future postings. Until then, play a game of Book BINGO with us! The cards and rules are posted on BPL Facebook page, mailed to your home at your request, available with each Grab-and-Go pick-up or available through email kgodin@berlinnh.gov.

Staff is available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. to answer your questions.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
