Services and Hours Expansion Beginning August 2nd

We are celebrating the expansion of library hours and services! Beginning Monday, August 2, all 13 libraries will provide community members with increased access to library services and spaces by expanding hours. During new library open hours, we invite you to browse and check out items, pick up holds, and make use of meeting rooms and equipment. Our libraries are youth settings, so masks are still required for both vaccinated and unvaccinated patrons. The libraries will continue to monitor public health guidelines to ensure that everyone remains safe and healthy during this next phase of reopening.

These services are the next step forward in a careful and thoughtfully phased approach to reinstituting library offerings and access. Library staff has been awaiting this next step and are excited to offer more services and impactful experiences.

New Library hours:

We’re excited to welcome back our community members with increased access to library services, spaces, and expanded hours. Effective Monday, August 2, Library hours at most locations will be:

  • Monday-Tuesday 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
  • Wednesday-Saturday 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Pacifica's two libraries will have adjusted hours:

Services Available Within the Libraries 

In April, we began offering limited in-library services, and we are pleased to continue to expand services available to the public. 

Additionally, our libraries will continue to offer an expanding array of digital materials, online resources, and an exciting lineup of virtual programs and events for all ages.  

Do you still prefer a convenient curbside experience? We will have updated Curbside Services for motor vehicles, which will be offered during open library hours at all locations. To use this service, simply pull into our designated curbside parking spot and give us a call or text and we will come outside to deliver your items to you by hand. 

You can continue to get in touch with our friendly and helpful Customer Care team and subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on our program offerings, online resources, and important news about our services.
