Return to In-Branch Access

Starting Monday, January 31

Thanks to subsiding COVID rates in our area, we're able to return to in-branch access starting Monday, January 31, ending our temporary return to curbside and phone-only service. Come into any branch to browse the collection, check out materials, and use computers for internet access, research, and printing. Meeting and study rooms can be reserved. We will continue to offer customer service and reading recommendations by phone, email, and chat during open hours. You will be able to make appointments for MakerLab Badging and equipment reservations at IdeaSpace. Bookdrops are open 24/7, and overdue fees are not being charged.

Curbside pickup will continue to be offered. For more information on branch access and schedules, visit

Based on CDC guidelines, customers should not visit a branch if they have a fever, symptoms of COVID-19, or have had exposure to a COVID-19 case in the preceding 5 days. Wearing a mask is recommended for a full 10 days after exposure.

The Friends Center & Bookshop will also open to the public on Monday, January 31.

Thank you for your patience as we work to provide excellent customer service while keeping customers and staff safe!
