Already miss browsing our shelves? We miss you, too! That’s why we’re offering staff-selected book bundles to bring a little of the Library experience to you, even while we’re contactless. Here’s how it works:

1. Come by any Brookline Library location and give your name to the staff member at the door. No need to bring your physical library card!
2. Ask for a book bundle from one of the following genres:
  • Adult Fiction
  • Adult Mystery
  • Adult Sci-Fi & Fantasy
  • Adult Quick Picks
  • Easy Readers
  • Picture Books
  • Children’s
  • Tween
  • Teen
3. Take home a surprise selection of titles hand-picked by our librarians, no holds or reservations necessary!

Contactless Pickup

The Library is currently back to a contactless pickup service model. During this time, you'll still be able to request and pick up materials, participate in virtual programs, and much more. For full details on our services in the coming weeks, please see our latest Letter from the Library Director.
