Curbside Pickup


Hours are Monday-Thursday 10am to 8pm. Fridays and Saturdays are between 10am and 5pm. Items are coming from most libraries in CT at this point if you request them for delivery to Acton. Please read the emails generated by our library system that will give you an update on your holds. 

Curbside Service began on May 26, 2020. After consulting with the health department and the town officials, we have come up with the following plan to provide you with curbside service. Please be patient as we figure out the best way to get you your items while keeping you and the library staff safe!
