How many people can enter and how long can I stay?

There are currently no capacity limits for any of our libraries.

How do I return materials?

All library materials must be returned in the outside bookdrops. We are not accepting returns inside the building.

Can I pick up my reserved items? Are you still offering contactless pickup?

Yes, for the quickest and safest holds pickup experience, we recommend using our Contactless Pickup Service. Holds can be placed online, by phone, by email, or via chat. When you receive a notification that your items are ready for pickup, you can place a pickup appointment online or over the phone. Your materials will be placed in a bag on a table near the door where you can take them and go.

If you prefer, you may pickup your holds inside the building. However, we do strongly recommend our contactless service.
