Ballston Spa Public Library is delighted to offer curbside pick-up to our community beginning Tuesday, June 23rd.

In our effort to protect the health of both our staff and patrons, curbside pickup will be offered with the following guidelines:

Curbside Pick-up Guidelines & Process

  1. Only items owned by Ballston Spa Public Library can be requested. Items owned by other libraries are not available at this time.
  2. Items can be placed on hold a few different ways – Online at limiting the search to items owned by Ballston Spa Public Library, emailing with titles or subjects, or by calling us 518-885-5022. There is a limit of 10 items per card.
  3. If you place the order by phone, you can schedule a pick-up time at that time. Otherwise, we will call you to set up a time when we receive your request. Staff must confirm your pickup time with you for your materials to be available. Pick-up times will be available Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 10am-4:30 pm, Thursday 1pm-6pm and Saturday 10:30am-12:30pm. Pick-up times will be scheduled in 30 minute windows to ensure social distancing requirements are met.
  4. At the time of pick-up, please call 518-885-5022 and let us know you are in the parking lot. Indicate whether you drove or walked. We will place your items in a bag labeled with your name either in your trunk or on a cart outside of the rear entrance if you walked. You will need to show ID before the bag is released to you. 

Returns and the Book Drop

The book drop opened on Wednesday, June 3rd.  Please place all returns in the drop box. Refrain from handing returns directly to a staff member. Returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in, so you will still see them on your account for a few days.


If you have any questions regarding our curbside pick-up services, email us at or call 518-885-5022.
