To make an appointment to use a computer or fax service, please call the Reference department at 203-488-1441 extension 318. Reservations are accepted up to one day in advance. Printing, scanning and faxing is also available. You can pay for prints or faxes with exact change, check, or credit card.
The Library also offers contactless pickup of books and other items, and delivery for homebound patrons. Holds can be placed through the online catalog, or by calling the library at 203-488-1441 extension 318 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. When your order is ready, we will call to schedule your pickup. The book (and audiovisual) drop in the rear of the building remains open for returns.
Please follow safety protocols
If you have an appointment, please wait outside of the library until 5 minutes prior to your scheduled time slot. Upon entering the building, you will be checked in at the lobby desk.
All patrons are required to wear a face covering while inside the library, and hand sanitizer is available. The water fountain and restrooms are unavailable. After check in, you may proceed directly to your designated computer area, and leave the building when your session is over.
Everyone is expected to maintain social distancing while in the building, though up to two people in a family unit are welcome to sit together at a computer station. If you have additional accessibility needs, please let the library know when scheduling an appointment.
If you only need to print, you can send your print job to the library directly from your phone, tablet, or computer. Visit blackstonelibrary.org/print-from-home to learn more. A staff member will contact you when the job is complete to make arrangements for payment and contactless pickup.
We’re excited to reoffer computer access
All new requirements and procedures are in place in accordance with the State of Connecticut’s guidelines for reopening. Staff at the Blackstone Library are excited to take this next step in safely offering increased service and support to the Branford community.
