Curbside Pickup Service begins June 29 at Main Library

NewLibraryMembershipCardThe public is not yet allowed inside New Jersey libraries, per Gov. Phil Murphy’s Executive Order. However, the books, magazines, DVDs and CDs that fill the Atlantic City Free Public Library are once again available to its library members.
The library will begin offering a contactless Curbside Pickup Service on Monday, June 29, at its Main Library location – allowing members an opportunity to borrow materials while maintaining a safe, social distance.
Library members can request specific materials; or, they can ask a staff member to pick items for them. A total of five items, two of which can be DVDs, are allowed to be checked out at once.
To request materials, library members can log into their account at opac.acfpl.org and place a hold, call the Curbside Service Hotline at (609) 345-6115 (Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.) or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

The library will operate the service Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. Staff will call once a request has been filled. There will be parking reserved next to the Main Library specifically for this service. Those picking up materials must wear a mask and verify the last four digits of the barcode from their library card.
Also beginning June 29, the Main Library book drop will remain open from 9 a.m. Monday until 5 p.m. Friday. All library items must be placed inside the book drop when they’re returned.
Those who do not wish to utilize the Curbside Pickup Service but want to borrow books, movies and music have the option of downloading them from the library’s digital media service Hoopla or Overdrive. Click on those links or download the apps to get started.
