Bucks County Free Library (BCFL) is reopening one step at a time.
Library book drops are open and users can return library materials.
Curbside pickup began Monday, June 22, and the seven branches will
reopen on Monday, July 6.
Users can request items for curbside pickup by placing a hold in the
library’s catalog or calling their branch. BCFL will let users know by
email when holds are available for pickup. After a user receives their
email notification, they can head to their branch and park in one of the
spots designated for curbside pickup, where their items will be brought
out to them. Curbside pickup will continue for users’ convenience even
after BCFL opens its doors.
Details on how the service works are available at buckslib.org/curbside
