Contactless Pick-up at Newtown Public Library

We are pleased to annouce that the library will be increasing our open hours starting Monday, August 2.

Open Hours:

  • Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Our superior contactless pick-up service will continue as long as there is a demand for it.

Contactless Pick-up Hours:

  • Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
  • Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Call the library at 610-353-1022 x1 or email us at nedirector@delcolibraries.org to request items that you would like to check out via contactless pick up. You may also place requests through the online catalog.

Don’t know what you would like to read or watch? Our librarians are prepared to put together Grab Bag Bundles of up to 20 items based on your preferences for you to check out. Just let us know what you like and our experts will do the rest!

Items will be checked out to your library card before you arrive. Once you get the automated notice (or phone call) that your item is available, please let us know if you’d like contactless pick-up rather than coming in to the library to pick-up.

On your scheduled pick-up day, you will find your materials in a new plastic bag labeled with your last name on a table inside the contactless pickup shelter by the back entrance of the library. If you are unable to pick-up your materials during your pick-up time, please contact the library to reschedule.

For your convenience, we will continue to provide a bin for returned matierals in the contactless pick-up shed which will only be available during contactless pick-up hours. The front book drop at the top of the stairs is always available.
