HD Closing Early on Thursday, July/Retrieval Delivery Notification for Monday, July 7


Please note that the Harvard Depository will be closing early—at 3:30 pm—on Thursday, July 3, with the facility remaining closed throughout the Fourth of July weekend. A sizable backlog of HD retrieval orders is expected to accumulate over the long holiday weekend. HD courier delivery service will resume on Monday, July 7. All pending retrieval requests will be pulled, prepared for transport and delivered by the end of day.

Due to the anticipated large volume of orders requiring fulfillment on Monday, the Depository plans to extend its delivery service into the afternoon hours on Monday, which should ensure full delivery to all clients, with retrieval orders being filled in the sequence outlined below:

  • All retrieval requests submitted before 1:00 pm on Thursday, July 3 will be delivered Monday morning, July 7.
  • All retrieval requests submitted after 1:00 pm on Thursday, July 3 will be delivered Monday afternoon, July 7.

Please advise staff and patrons accordingly.

Best wishes to all for a glorious Fourth of July weekend!
