Curbside Service is now available for holds pickup and returns, during curbside hours.
We are happy to now be able to offer curbside service at most of our locations.
Note: Service Suspended at Corte Madera & Novato Jan.25-Feb.15, 2021. Details.
For non-MCFL libraries in Marin, please visit their websites for details of curbside services offered.
All branches are currently closed to the public.
How to Order Curbside Pickup
Returns are accepted at all locations during curbside hours. In addition, book drops at the Bolinas Library, Civic Center Library, Corte Madera Library, Fairfax Library, Inverness Library, Point Reyes Library, South Novato Library & Stinson Beach Library are open all hours for returns.
Please make sure to stay at least 6 feet away from others and wear a face covering.
Note: Please be aware that returned items will be quarantined for at least 96 hours before being checked in, so items will remain on your library record while we safely process them. (Returned items might remain on your account for as long as a week.) You will not be charged late fees during this time.
Because of safety protocols, no return receipts will be available.
We also now offer automatic renewals of any items that can be renewed. If an item can be renewed (i.e. if there’s no-one waiting for it, and it hasn’t already been renewed the maximum number of times), then it will automatically be renewed. Please be sure to check your library reminder notices for any items coming due, as not all items can be renewed. (Automatic renewal does not apply to ebooks.)

Branches cannot accept donations at this time.
