While our building still remains closed to the public, the Library is now open for returns and curbside pickup.
You may return your library books to the Library Drop Slot next to the front entrance. Returned items will be quarantined for at least 72 hours, during which time they will remain checked out to patrons, but will not accrue fines. At this time, our return bin at the Mill Valley Community Center and Lower Book Drop remain closed.
How Curbside Pickup Works:
- Place items on hold by calling 415-389-4292 or by emailing email@example.com.
- Once you’ve been notified that your items are available for pickup, come to the Library. We have spots reserved out front for vehicles if you arrive by car. Once at the Library, call our curbside line at 415-384-4731 or use our intercom to let Library staff know you’re out front.
- Library staff will verify your information over the phone, check out your materials, and bring them outside to a designated pickup area.
*Please do not linger in the area where patrons will be picking up books and adhere to our clearly marked, social distancing signage.
How Long Will it Take to Get My Hold?
Thanks for your patience as we try to provide the best service possible during this time. Most holds placed on items available at the MV Library will be fulfilled within the hour, but items requested from other libraries may take longer than usual. *Our online catalog will be open to self-placed holds once more MARINet libraries are offering curbside.
Please Wear a Mask & Maintain 6-foot Distance
Our staff wear masks, wash their hands frequently, and practice social distancing. Please return the favor.
