More Branches Reopening with Modified Services the Week of May 3

We are happy to announce that, beginning the week of May 3, Marin County Free Library will reopen more branches to the public for Library Express Service. To ensure sufficient space for social distancing to protect the health and safety of the public, the libraries will be open with limited occupancy and offer select services.

Marin County Free Library branches opening for Library Express Service the week of May 3 include Civic Center, Marin City, and South Novato.

Because of ongoing construction, Corte Madera has resumed curbside service only. Corte Madera will be offering limited outdoor browsing near the entrance to the library starting on Tuesday, May 4. Please bring items to the front door for staff to check out for you.

Fairfax, Novato, and the West Marin branches in Bolinas, Inverness, Point Reyes and Stinson Beach have already reopened for Library Express Service.

Please note that other Marin libraries are developing their own plans for reopening, and information is available on their websites.

What services does Library Express include?

In-person browsing and additional services will be available, limited to 30 minute visits. Availability of specific services and access to facilities may vary by location, due to factors such as construction. Please check our website to see hours and services available at your local branch. All visitors will be asked to abide by safety protocols including wearing a mask and social distancing requirements.

What about Curbside Service?

Curbside Service will continue to be available, though hours may change.

If you have questions, our Talk to a Librarian Help Line is available at (415) 473-2272, M-F 9-6, Sat 9-3, Sun 1-4, or contact us online.

As we move forward, Library staff are working closely with County Health & Human Services and Risk Management to ensure the safety of our patrons and staff, and we will be gathering feedback as our new service model evolves.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Library!
