SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - CALL AHEAD FOR PICKUP SERVICE BEGINS TUESDAY, MAY 26TH !!!
Starting Tuesday, May 26th at most Mono County Library locations, you can pick up library materials by prearranging with your local library staff for pick up. Locations starting this service include Coleville, Bridgeport, June Lake, Benton, Mammoth Lakes and Crowley Lake. Lee Vining will join on or before June 1st.
Click here for specific details for how the "Call Ahead" service will work. Basically you can use your Mono County Library Card to go to our online catalog - in the Quick Links section to the right - to place a hold on an item, or you can contact your local library staff by phone or email during regular hours. Contact information for your location can be found in the BRANCHES menu above. Your local staff member will confirm with you by phone or email the expected date/time for you to pick up your item(s), check them out ahead of time, and arrange them for you to pick up at the library's entrance through a safe contactless handoff. When you're done with the item(s), simply return it in the library's exterior book drop to maintain the contactless handoff and we will clean and quarantine the time for 4 days before reshelving it. We will continue to waive overdue fines during this period.

We look forward to seeing you in person again and thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement this new service. We are also working toward readying a modified 'inside service' once again when California moves into Phase 3 of reopening. Stay tuned!
