Outside pickup has started!

During this first phase of a gradual reopening plan, there will be no public access to the inside of the library buildings.  Outside Pickup is available at the main library, at the Katharine Lee Bates entrance doors. Items should be requested in advance, either through the library’s online CLAMS catalog or with staff help by phone (508) 457-2555 ext. 2901.  Requests may also be made via email to info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org or via our text-a-librarian service. Text us by texting 66746 and starting your question with “askfpl”
As with ALL requests, you will be notified when your item is ready for pickup either by phone or email. The soonest you will be able to get your item will be the day after you make your request.
