Contactless Curbside Pickup

Items will be available at the Cyril Ward Memorial Library (27 Pleasant Street, Guysborough, NS) during your scheduled pickup window.

Items will be checked out to you and will be inside a paper bag. Your surname will be written on the bag. We recommend that you set this package aside for 24 hours before opening and wash your hands after discarding the bag.

At the beginning of your scheduled pickup window, the wrapped items will be placed just outside the door in a box marked Curbside Pickup. They will remain there for 30 minutes. If they are not retrieved during the scheduled window, they will be taken inside and a new pickup window must be arranged by phone. Please call 902-533-3586 to reschedule or cancel. Items that are not picked up within 1 week after original scheduled pickup window will be cancelled and items will be sent along to the next requestor or to be reshelved.


Please place returns in the bookdrop located in the foyer of the Municipal Building next door to the library. If the items do not fit in the box, please call the library at 902-533-3586 to arrange contactless return.

ECRL does not charge overdue fines.
