How Lobby Pickup Works

Placing Holds

You can place holds for items 3 different ways:

1. Go to the Mid-Hudson Library System online catalog HERE. 

2. Call us at 845-338-5580 to place holds. 

3. Email library staff at info@esopuslibrary.org with your requests with as much detail as possible. Please also provide your full name and contact information.

Please allow library staff time to gather items from our collection. Items from other libraries will take longer to arrive. 

Picking Up Holds

Scheduling pickup

Once your holds are ready, you will be notified. You must then call, email, or click HERE to schedule a pickup time. If scheduling online, please make sure your name is saved to the appointment. 

Picking up items

When you arrive at the library, please wear a mask. 

Items will be located in the library lobby and have already been checked out for your convenience. 

Items can also be picked up at the Circulation Desk as well. Items can be returned to the outside book drop or the inside book drop located at the Circulation Desk.
