GoLibrary at the YMCA
[Please note that the goLibrary Locker service is suspended until further notice due to COVID restrictions.]
We are trying to make it as easy as possible to use the library with our goLibrary locker at the Skaneateles YMCA and Community Center! The goLibrary locker allows you to pick-up your holds and return items at the YMCA. The Skaneateles YMCA and Community Center is located at 97 State Street. Their hours are Monday thru Friday: 5:15 AM to 9:00 PM, Saturday & Sunday: 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
What if I have questions?
goLibrary isn’t staffed, but please call the Skaneateles Library at 685-5135 if you need any help.
I’m not a YMCA member. Can I still use goLibrary?
Absolutely! goLibrary is located right inside the entrance, so you won’t need a membership to get to it.
Can I return any items to goLibrary?
Sure! You may return any OCPL library materials to goLibrary, regardless of where you checked them out. However, oversized items may not fit through the slot. Please return those to the library.
If I check out items at goLibrary, does that mean I have to return them there, too?
You can return items checked out at goLibrary to the Skaneateles Library, the Byrne Dairy book drop or any OCPL library.
Are there certain items that I can’t have delivered to goLibrary?
Yes. Some items are too big to fit in the lockers, such as Book Club Bags and Early Literacy Kits; those items won’t be able to be placed on hold for the YMCA. If we receive an item that won’t fit in a locker, we’ll notify you and you’ll be able to pick it up at the library.
Is there a limit to how many items I can pick up at goLibrary?
Not at this time. If your materials won’t fit in one locker, a second one will be used if it’s available.
What if I don’t want one of my holds?
No problem. Just return it in the drop box in the locker.
How do I check out my goLibrary holds?
It’s quick and easy! Just touch “Collect Items” on the touchscreen in the locker, scan your library card, touch “Open All” and a locker door will pop open. All your items are automatically checked out to you.
How long do I have to pick up my materials?
You have 7 days from the date of the notification.
How will I know when my hold is ready?
You’ll be notified that your materials are ready for pick-up in the same way you are now – either by phone, text or email.
