Pick Up Items

After you receive an email stating your items are ready, you will have seven days to pick them up at the location you selected when you placed the hold.

If you selected pick up at the Brimfield Public Library, come to the Circulation desk and let a staff member know you have items on the hold shelf.

If you have one or more items that are 21+ days overdue, or you owe $5+ in replacement costs or collection fees, you will not be able to check out anything else or renew any currently checked out items until you return the late items or pay down your balance.

The library does not charge daily overdue fees, but if an item is 21+ days overdue, you may be referred to a material recovery agency. Find more information about returning items and paying fees here.
