Contactless Curbside Pickup Starts June 15

We are excited to be offering Contactless Curbside Pickup as of Monday, June 15. This service is offered Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Every White Plains cardholder can request three items a day and pick them up during those hours. You can borrow books, movies, music, and audiobooks for yourself or your children. Here’s how to get started:

  • Call (914) 422-1400. We’ll ask for your name, library card number, phone number, and email.
  • Let us know what you are looking for. If you have a specific book or movie, great! If you want us to pick out items for you, let us know the last few books or movies that you really enjoyed. We’ll hang up and start searching.
  • Once we have collected your titles, we will call you back to review and to check the items out to you. You will have seven days to pick up the material.
  • Drive to the Library Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and when you pull up to our cut-out, call (914) 422-1490 and provide your name. Stay in your car, and a library worker will leave your items—bagged and with your name prominently on the exterior—on a table in front of the Library.
  • Walking? Just give us a call when you get to the corner of Martine Avenue and Martin Luther King or South Lexington, and we’ll leave your items on the table.
  • Retrieve your items and enjoy.
  • Please don’t engage our staff in conversation. If you have questions, call (914) 422-1400.
  • To return materials, use the book drop on the left of the entrance, open every day 24/7. Please keep the bags—they are reusable, recyclable, and biodegradable.
  • We are not accepting book donations at this time.

    Hi, can I still check out museum/park passes? I am interested in visiting Storm King Art Center, which will soon reopen. Thank you.

      Hi Natasha, we’re not currently checking out museum passes. Hopefully we will have an update on the status of those services next week. Thank you for your patience.

      Hi James, currently we’re only doing pickup for White Plains cardholders.

    Good morning, many books I wish to order are held at different branches of the Westchester Public Library System. Is there a future date when we can order books from other libraries for pickup at White Plains? Thank you.

      Hi Mike, resource sharing among the WLS libraries should be back in the next few weeks. Thank you for your patience.
