Contactless Curbside Delivery! & Book Drop Re-Opening Information!

Contactless Curbside Delivery! & Book Drop Re-Opening Information!

Wayne Public Library is excited to start Contactless Curbside Delivery starting on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

Wayne library cardholders will be able to reserve materials through our online catalog ( or by calling our main line at 973-694-4272 ext. 5210 or ext 5211.

Due to the uncertainty of when statewide interlibrary loan delivery services will resume, only materials currently available at the Wayne Public Library will be available to be reserved. Only 15 items can be placed on hold and checked out at this time.

Library staff will prepare items daily for pick up. When they’re ready, we’ll give you a call to arrange for pick up date and time. Materials can be picked up from 9 AM to 4:30 PM on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and from 9 AM to 8 PM on Tuesdays.

Please let us know if you will be picking up the items yourself, or if you are designating someone else to pick up materials for you.
When you arrive at the Library, please park at one of the three “Library Curbside Pickup” designated spaces in front of the library. Give us a call at 973-694-4272 to let us know you are here, and the make, model, and color of your vehicle.

When Library staff come out to deliver to your vehicles, please have your library card ready to show the staff member by putting up to your window. If you have been designated to pick up for someone else, please present a form of ID. After that, just pop your trunk and staff will place your materials in your car for you to enjoy!

Book Drop Reopening

We thank so many of you for holding onto library materials these last few months. We have continued extending due dates and have once again extended all due dates to June 30, 2020.

But we know many of you are eager to return the items you have checked out. Starting on Tuesday, May 26, 2020, we will reopen the book drop for you to drop off materials.

The Book Drop is only for Borrowed Library Materials. Please do not bring Donations to the Book Drop.

Since there are literally thousands of items ready to come back, and our book drop can only take so much at a time, the book drop will only be open from 9 AM to 4:30 PM on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, and from 9 AM to 8 PM on Tuesdays. That way, Library staff can empty out the book drop and open space again for you to keep feeding the beast!

Please be aware that returned materials will not be immediately taken off of your record upon return. We will store materials for up to one week based on recommended guidelines, but don’t worry, you will NOT accumulate any fines. Thank you for holding onto and taking care of all those materials!
