How does contactless pickup work?
The Neil Hellman Library is using a contactless pickup protocol this summer and Fall 2020 semester in order to ensure the health and safety of the Saint Rose community. This is what contactless pickup looks like:
1. Library staff contacts you when your Library Takeout order is available for pickup.
2. You arrive at the entrance to the Neil Hellman Library anytime during Library Takeout hours. Be sure to wear a proper mask or face covering for the duration of your Library Takeout pickup.
3. Call the Circulation Desk: 518-650-3852. Provide library staff with your full name and let them know you are here to pick up your Library Takeout order.
4. Be prepared to show your CSR ID card through the window when prompted.
5. Once your identity has been verified, back away from the door and move to the far side of the designated Library Takeout table.
6. You are welcome to grab your order as soon as library staff drops it off and moves away from the table.
I nstructions for contactless pickup will be posted at the entrance to the library.
Thank you for helping us make our Library Takeout service safe for everyone!
