The 10 branches of the Marin County Free Library are starting to expand hours for indoor visits and other in-library services as the county removes COVID-19 restrictions.

During the pandemic, the library provided curbside book pickups and limited in-person visits. Now, fully vaccinated patrons will not need a mask inside, and there are no limited times on visits, social distancing requirements or occupancy limits related to the pandemic.

“The reopening process is a fluid one; we hope to have all our branches operating at full capacity in the coming weeks,” said Gabriella Calicchio, the library’s interim director. “We have truly missed our regular patrons and look forward to meeting new community members as we open our doors.”

More information on branch schedules, events, outdoor programs and more offers can be found at the library’s website.
