Catalog Requests are back!

Catalog Requests are Back!

Our Curbside Service has opened up requests to include any branch in the tri-county system! Just request items through our Find! catalog and when the items get here, contact us to set up an appointment for curbside pickup.

Curbside Services will continue to be available, Monday through Friday from 11:00 am – 4:30 pm, by appointment only. Item requests can only be made by using the library Find! catalog, the MCL app, or by calling your branch for assistance.

For the safety of all, Mendocino County Library staff will be wearing masks and washing/sanitizing hands prior to handling requested items. In addition, all items available for request will be properly quarantined and/or disinfected in accordance with CDC protocols.

To ensure successful service please carefully follow the instructions given to you by library staff.

How Curbside Pickup Works:

Always properly wear a face covering.

If you have questions at the curb, please call the number on the sign when you arrive for your scheduled pickup time.

Library staff will place the bag with your items on the table outside the front door with the first 4 letters of your last name on the bag, (as we did on your “hold slip”).

Approach the table only when your items have been placed there.

Practice social distancing and stay at least six feet apart.

Do not congregate around material pick up areas.

Maintain recommended social distance from staff.

Where to return your items T-F 11 am – 3 pm


Returns are being accepted Tues-Fri, 11 am – 3 pm (except Fri July 3rd when the library will be observing the Independence Day holiday).

Please take material to Meeting Room door and place on the black cart. Staff monitor the cart for returned items every 5 minutes.
