If your summer reading goals have been lacking lately, getting your hands on riveting reads just got a lot easier - because many Hamptons and East End-based libraries are now offering curbside pickup.

Montauk Library (871 Montauk Highway, Montauk, montauklibrary.org) is offering curbside pickup for books, DVDs and other items. To reserve an item/items, patrons must request the material at montauklibrary.org/curbside. Once ready, the library will contact the patron to schedule a pickup time at the Curbside Pickup station in front of the library. Items should be returned to the library's outdoor bookdrop and until the library is totally re-opened, there will be no fines on overdue items.

The East Hampton Library's (159 Main Street, East Hampton, easthamptonlibrary.org) curbside pickup commenced on Tuesday, June 15.

When the material is ready for pickup, patrons are asked to park on Main Street in front of the Library and call 631-324-0222 to let library staff know they have arrived. Staff will put the requested items on a table outside the library's front door. Additionally, returns can now be made to book drops located in the front and rear of the building. There will be no fines for overdue items that could not be returned because of the library's closing in March.
