Pick Up During Curbside Hours

When picking up your holds or dropping off returns, please follow all directions, stay at least 6 feet away from others and wear a face covering.

Please do your part to keep yourself, other patrons and our staff safe.

Curbside Returns

Returns are accepted at all locations during curbside hours (except Corte Madera Library due to emergency construction).  In addition, book drops at the Bolinas Library, Civic Center Library, Fairfax Library, Inverness Library, Novato 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 a minimum of 24 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.)

No Curbside Donations

Branches cannot accept donations at this time.

The Friends of the Library book store, the Book Place, is accepting donations on a limited basis. Please see the Friends website, opens a new window for more details.
