Curbside/Vestibule PICKUP Instructions

How can I schedule a pickup of items I have put on hold?

You can choose curbside pickup where we will deliver right to your car, or we can leave it for you in the Patron Pickup Vestibule.  Call us at 845-265-3040, or email [email protected] and let us know which option you prefer!

How do I return items I already have checked out?

Come inside to the Front Desk, or place them in one of the two return boxes we have - one is in the parking lot, the other is a slot in the front door. (PLEASE NOTE: Our parking lot drop box is closed until further notice due to vandalism.)
