Sounds Great! How Do I Sign Up?
•  Participants must live in Montclair.
•  The program is designed for those who cannot leave their homes with ease, either temporarily or permanently.
•  Participants must have a valid library card, free of fines. If the patron does not have an existing library card, one can be issued to them when they apply for the service.
•  Deliveries are made once a week on Tuesday. Patrons must call the library by noon on Monday for Tuesday delivery. NOTE: During the COVID-19 Pandemic, deliveries will be made on Thursdays, be sure to call by Monday for Thursday delivery.
•  H.A.S. patrons are responsible for accepting books from the driver. If they cannot come to the door, a safe place must be designated where books can be exchanged.

I‘m Already Signed Up, Now What?
•  Call Dawn Quinn, Head of Borrower Services (973-744-0500 ext. 2280).
•  Identify yourself as a H.A.S. patron, and tell the staff member how many items are to be picked up and the items that you’d like delivered.
•  You may request specific titles or make general requests, e.g. a mystery written in 2002 or a few books by Mary Higgins Clark.
•  If the books you request are not available, the library is happy to place a reserve or request via interlibrary loan for you free of charge.
