Have you received a hold notification? We'd be delighted if you could give us a call (585-359-7092) before you head over to pick them up. We need a little time to get your items checked out and ready for you to pick up at curbside. 


Why yes, we are accepting returns. Library materials may be returned in the drive-up book drop located on the west side of our building. If you've recently returned items and they're still showing up on your account, never fear! We are currently receiving an extremely high volume of returns and are doing our best to keep up. In addition, we quarantine all returns for 72 hours before discharging and shelving them. Thank you for your patience. We'll be sure to backdate the returns so you aren't charged overdue fees.
