Contactless Curbside Pickup

Items will be available at the Drs. Coady & Tompkins Memorial Library (7972 Cabot Trail, Margaree Forks, 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 Materials. 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 902-248-2821 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 box outside of the front door. Returns are accepted in this box only during the hours of 10am-1pm and 2pm-6pm, Wednesday-Saturday. If the items do not fit in the box, please call the library at 902-248-2821 to arrange contactless return.
