On February 2, the library trustees voted to make reopening the building contingent on a set of benchmarks measuring COVID-19 transmission in Nashua. This is the same standard used by the Nashua School District in determining when to allow students back in the classrooms.
Assuming these benchmarks continue their current trend, a partial reopening of the library building is projected for early March. Updates will be posted at nashualibrary.org/connect/press-room later in February.
Until then, customers can place library items on hold and receive them using curbside pickup during these hours:
For more information on using curbside pickup, click here.
We answer the phones, email, and chat:
- Monday to Thursday: 9 am to 7 pm
- Friday and Saturday: 9 am to 5 pm
We still aren’t charging overdue fines. But we will send you a reminder two days before your items are due and another if they become overdue. Please return them to the book drops by their due dates.
We quarantine items after you return them, so they may still appear checked out on your account for four or five days after you bring them back.
Online services still available
Virtual library events and classes continue to be held. You can see the schedule and register in our online calendar.
While we are closed, you can still use your library card to access these free resources on our website:
- Use our online catalog to reserve items to take home through curbside pickup.
- Download audio- and e-books, and stream video, from our e-media collection.
- Do online research.
- Take an online class.
- Reserve museum passes.
If you don’t have a library card, sign up online for a temporary one. A temporary card gives you access to all these services and will be valid until June 2021.
