Curbside Service @ MPL
Curbside pickup service launched Monday, July 6th! To stock up on books, DVDs, magazines, and more, start by placing a reserve on an item in one of three ways:
1️⃣ online at monrovia.biblionix.com/catalog
2️⃣ by texting the Library at 626-531-1446
3️⃣ calling the Library at 626-256-8274 (Mon-Sat 10am-5pm)
Once you reserve your item, you will be contacted by staff to arrange a pickup date. On the day of your pickup, call or text us that you have arrived and we will have your items ready. In accordance with public health guidelines, please practice physical distancing and wear a mask when picking up your items.
Book Drops Are Now Open
The book drops located on Lime Ave are open 24/7. All items checked out before the library's closure on 3/13 will be due on August 31. Items checked out during Curbside Service, starting July 6th, will be due within the regular loan period, with automatic renewal available on items that are not reserved. All returned materials will be quarantined before being reissued, as recommended by health officials. Due to the quarantine period, it may take up to a week for items to be removed from your account upon return.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work hard to keep staff and the community healthy and safe. If you have questions, please email us at email@example.com.
