Contactless Curbside Pick-Up and Summer Reading

            The Elizabeth Taber Library will begin offering contactless curbside pickup of Marion Library materials starting Tuesday, June 23. Curbside Pick-Up will be available by appointment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 12:00 to 4:00 pm, and Saturdays from 12:00 to 3:00 pm. Interested in using curbside pick-up? Here’s how it works:

Place a hold online at or over the phone at 508-748-1252. The staff will call you to schedule a pickup time. Call the library when you arrive. Don’t have a mobile phone?  Let the library know when you schedule your pick up! Wait for staff to place a bag with your materials on our curbside pickup table. Pick up and enjoy!

            The Elizabeth Taber Library will begin accepting return of library materials June 15 through 18 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm. Please place return materials in tubs provided in front of the book drop. Please refrain from using the book drop at this time. The library will not be accepting donations of books and other materials as our staff shifts focus to returns and curbside. Thank you for your donations, we will announce future book donation drives.

            Looking for tech help, readers advisory, or reference help? Starting on Monday, June 22 you can call the library Monday through Saturday, 12:00 to 4:00 pm to book a librarian! Learn to download ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines, get reading recommendations, and more.
