Masks are optional in the Library, but are appreciated.

Many young children and families are daily visitors to our library. Children under the age of 5 are not yet vaccinated against Covid. Masks are available in the entryway. If you or anyone in your party is not feeling well, or has recently tested positive for Covid, please do not enter the library. We are happy to put materials in the Lobby pickup area for you. Thank you for your cooperation! 

Here's how to request items for pickup:

  • Place holds in the catalog: shirley.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home, or give us a call at 978-425-2620 and tell us what you'd like.
  • You will receive either an email, a text or a phone call that your holds are ready for pickup. * Please be sure to update your notification method in your account preferences.
  • Wait at least 1 hour after receiving notification that your holds are ready, so we can prepare them for you.
  • Your requested items will be in a paper bag with your last name and first initial written on it.
  • Bags are arranged on shelves alphabetically by last name.
  • Please pick up your holds within 7 days, or they will be returned.
