The Burnham Library is pleased to offer curbside pick-up of library materials and print-outs by appointment to Bridgewater residents and non-residents. 

Curbside Pickup

Requests will be received and processed during library hours: Tuesday – Friday 10-5 and Saturday 9-1.

Curbside pick-up is offered for both Bridgewater residents and non-residents.

Patrons may browse and request items through our library catalog or by emailing or by phone at 860-354-6937.

A staff member will contact you via email or phone to confirm that your pick-up is ready and schedule a time for you to pick up your items.

Items will NOT be left in the pick-up bin without confirmation from the patron.

Upon confirmation, your items will be placed in our curbside pick-up bin located outside the side door of the library. 

Patrons returning items may do so in our external book drop which is open 24/7.

Faxing Services

Faxing is for outgoing faxes only.

Library staff will attempt to send a fax 3 times. There is no guarantee that the fax will send successfully.

Once done, you will be given a transmission receipt whether the fax submission is successful or not. 

Faxing can take as long as 30-45 minutes. You are welcome to leave and come back later to retrieve your original documents and receipt.
