  2. Call us at 607-642-9960 during our revised open hours or leave a message with your name, phone number, and request.
  3. Email director@tsmlibrary.org with your request.

Once your order is ready, you may:

  1. Contact us by phone or email to schedule a pick-up time during our curbside hours.
  2. Call once you’ve arrived out front.

Your materials will be brought to your vehicle and placed in the trunk or backseat. Please follow distancing rules during pickup.


Since there is no Finger Lakes Library System delivery at this time, we ask that you please return Tappan-Spaulding Memorial Library owned items borrowed from us back to us and not to another library.

 For your safety and ours, please don’t hand materials to staff. Please return your materials to the drop box.

Safety Precautions

Please know the safety for our staff and patrons is of the utmost importance to us. In order to comply with state guidelines for businesses, all library employees are required to wear masks. All library materials that are returned from patrons are isolated for 7 days before they are handled by staff. We have hand sanitizer readily available at all work stations and, of course, are hand washing frequently. We are cleaning ‘high touch’ surfaces like door handles, phones, and light switches and continuing to routinely clean and sanitize our library. We have developed a ‘no contact’ method for delivering library materials through curbside pickup, ensuring safety of both staff and patrons. We appreciate all of the concern and support during this difficult time.


Check out our curbside FAQs and please don’t hesitate to email us at director@tsmlibrary.org with additional questions.
