Rockland Public Library will begin accepting returns May 18

ROCKLAND — The public can now return items to the book return box or return slot, both located outside of the library by the White Street entrance. Returned items will be quarantined for the recommended time. The next incoming stage of the re-opening plan is curbside pick-up. Staff are completing the logistical strategy for a safe, no-contact method for providing this service.

While still closed to the public, the library will be staffed Monday through Friday and ready to help by phone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 594-0310, email, or check out the Rockland Public Library's Facebook page.
