The New York Public Library Begin a Phased Reopening

As part of New York City’s reopening, The New York Public Library is beginning the careful, phased process of returning limited service to its physical locations after temporarily closing due to the outbreak of COVID-19. As of Monday, July 13, they are offering grab-and-go service at eight library locations. At each of these locations, patrons can access a limited area for returns and pick up materials that they’ve reserved. Patrons can now place holds on physical materials via an online catalog.

For more information about how to use NYPL’s Grab & Go service, please see the step-by-step instructions.
