Most Marin County Free Library Branches Reopening with Modified Services the Week of April 19

We are happy to announce that, beginning the week of April 19, Marin County Free Library will reopen most 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 April 19 include Bolinas, Fairfax, Inverness, Novato, Pt. Reyes, and Stinson Beach. Reopening dates for the Civic Center, Corte Madera, Marin City and South Novato branch libraries are still being planned and will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.

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.  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.

More information about branch hours for Library Express and Curbside Services and details about what will be included at branch libraries will be communicated soon.  Updates will be available on our website.

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!

* Please be aware that the City Public Libraries, College of Marin, and Dominican University are developing their own reopening plans.  Please review their individual websites for specific details.
