“Grab & Go” Pickup in the Hoboken Library is literally “Grab it and GO!” 

Take advantage of our convenient “Grab & Go” Pickup service inside the Main Branch at 500 Park Avenue.  Just come into the Library to pick up up materials placed for you on the Holds Shelf on the first floor, to the left of the Circulation Desk.  No need to check out your material; we’ve already done that for you!

Did you know? Placing orders is a snap on our online catalog.

“Of course, there’s an app for that.”

If you’ve browsed the shelves, and found something you want to check out, you can use our “meeScan” app to check out materials with your smartphone.

It’s a barrier-free, private, self-service feature for library customers of all ages.  Using it is as simple as scan the barcode and go!
