Book Drops are Open for Material Returns
Do you still have an item checked out from the Southborough Library? Even though the building is still closed due to the pandemic, our Book Drops are open 24/7 for the return of materials.
There are two library book drops to the left of the downstairs parking lot entrance. They are both large and bright blue in color. They are outside adjacent to the trash receptacles.
Items returned in the drops will not be checked in right away. Staff are only emptying the book drops on Monday and Thursday mornings. Emptied material is then quarantined in the Eaton Room for a 72-hour period before being checked in and reshelved.

As of Monday, June 8th, the Southborough Library is now open for Curbside Pickup Service. Please call us at 508-485-5031 or reserve your item through your C/W MARS account to place your order for library material.
