Yarmouth Town Libraries         

Yarmouth Town Libraries now offer you curbside pickup of books, movies, music, magazines, and more.

Curbside pickup is available by appointment only.

Staff members take all required precautions to ensure your materials are safe to pick up. We are wearing masks, and using bags that have been quarantined for the time period recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

You must call the Library to set up a pickup time for requested materials.

You can place holds on library materials through the CLAMS catalog using your library card number and PIN. If you are unsure of your PIN, please contact us at 508-760-4820 for South Yarmouth Library and at 508-775-5206 for West Yarmouth Library for assistance.

We are also filling new hold requests made by phone or by email at syarmouth@clamsnet.org and wyar_mail@clamsnet.org.

The statewide delivery service will be reactivated soon, but as you can imagine, there is a big backlog. You can request items from other libraries, but you may need to pick them up at the owning library or wait a while longer.

Staff will call you to schedule a time for you to pick up your items. Any items not picked up will be removed and rescheduled.

Please wait for staff to call you before coming to the Library. We will not fill unscheduled service requests.

If you are feeling unwell in any way, please do not come and pick up your items. Let us know and we will hold them until you are well. 

All library users MUST wear a mask during pickup.

We will place your items on one of the benches near the Library entrance in a bag with your name on it. The items will have already been checked out to you.

If someone else is retrieving items when you arrive to pick up, please wait until they finish before retrieving your materials.

For those who are unable to pick up their materials, we offer limited front-step home delivery to residents. Please call us at 508-760-4820 or send an email to syarmouth@clamsnet.org. Please request this only if circumstances make it difficult for you to pick up your materials yourself.

You can return your library materials in the book drop at each library location. All returned items are being quarantined for a period of time before being reshelved or recirculated.

Action recommended by Yarmouth Department of Health.

Yarmouth Town Libraries will re-open as soon as we are able. Overdue materials will not accrue fines during our closure. Access to downloadable books, magazines, movies and more is available through the Libby app or https://clams.overdrive.com. Have your library card and PIN ready.

Watch for updates:


If you have questions or concerns, please contact us at 508-760-4820 or 508-258-9496, or via email: syarmouth@clamsnet.org or wyar_mail@clamsnet.org.

Stay well!
