Curbside Pick-up & Returns Hours of Operation


What does that mean? That means that Fort Bragg Library will be **open for grab and go browsing on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1:00 to 5:00pm starting this week! Masks and social distancing are required for all visitors.

Only 10 visitors are allowed in the building at a time so make your visits short and sweet so we can accommodate everyone!

We can’t wait to see you at the library!

**provisional. If the county moves us back to purple, we will resume our old curbside schedule. If they move us to a higher tier, our hours open may change accordingly.

See below for curbside information during those hours we are not open to the public.

Curbside Pick-up and Returns Hours of Operation


Curbside Pick-up will continue to be available, Monday through Friday from 11:00 am – 4:20 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. Returns are accepted at the same time on the black cart in the lobby.

For the safety of all, Mendocino County Library staff will be practicing county health guidelines on the safe handling of all 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 to Use Curbside Service

Requests now available from any location in our tri-county system (Mendocino, Lake, Sonoma)

Due to item quarantine, transport and availability – items may not be available for quite some time. Please be patient.

When you receive your automated notice that the item has arrived and is being held (automated notices come by text, email, phone or mail) contact the Library at 707-964-2020 to schedule a curbside pick-up reservation time.

Pick up is by time-slot reservation only. No drop-ins.

Seeds are still available to request (up to 20 seed packets total per individual card holder). See details and access the Fort Bragg Seed Library request form HERE.

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 inside the front door with the first 4 letters of your last name on the bag, (as we did on your “hold slip”) and your scheduled pickup time.

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

Practice social distancing and stay at least six feet apart. Only one person in the lobby at a time, please.

Do not attempt to enter the building beyond the lobby. The library remains closed to the public.

Do not congregate around material pick up areas.

Maintain recommended social distance from staff.



Returns are being accepted Mon-Fri, 10 am-4:30 pm.

Please place return materials on the black cart just inside the front door. Staff will monitor the cart for returned items every few minutes.
