COVID-19 Library Services - Spring 2022

Check this page for any updates to the DiPietro Library's Covid-19 policies.


Masks are required to be worn in all areas of the library including study rooms and the IDEAL Center.

This policy will be revisited over Spring Break 2022.


The library welcomes Franklin Pierce University students, staff, and faculty (both current and emeritus).  We regret that the library remains closed to the general public at this time.


Curbside Pickup

The DiPietro Library offers Curbside pickup for community and other patrons who wish to use library materials and do not wish to (or cannot) enter the library.  Area residents with a DiPietro Library card may borrow items using our curbside service.  Call 603-899-4140 or email for details
