Library News

Holds on Books

Although the library is still closed, holds may once again be placed on books in the online catalog.

Once you have received an email that your book is available, you may pick up your hold on Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except Feb. 19, which is President's Day.) The library is operating with a skeleton staff while closed, hence the reduced hours.

BHPL is the second building in the large parking lot at 110 Roosevelt Ave., the smaller building with the blue door. Since the library does not have a certificate of occupancy yet, you will need to ring the doorbell and a staff member will bring your library books.

No Holds on DVDs and Audiobooks

Unfortunately, Holds on DVDs and audiobooks are not allowed at this time. The hallway where DVDs and CDs will be shelved will be covered in dust once construction begins, so they've been kept boxed.

Late Fines

Late fines were suspended beginning Dec. 5 and will not begin to accumulate again until March 1.  Overdue notices are still being emailed, which you may ignore.

Consumer Reports

The library web site now has a direct link to Consumer Reports on its Databases page.  You have to click "Search within this publication" to get to a search box, but that is really minor given the labyrinth that everyone used to click and type their way through.

Book Group

The evening book group is meeting on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Dunkin' Donuts on Springfield Ave. to discuss Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance.
