Library Response To Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Library Customers –

In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, all branches and book drops of Montgomery County Public Libraries will remain closed until further notice. All in-person programs, classes, activities and rentals scheduled during the closure are canceled.

Some steps that we are taking to make sure that our customers are not unduly impacted by this shutdown are

  • The suspension of fulfillment of holds until further notice
  • The suspension of library fines until further notice
  • The extension of all due dates until further notice
  • The extension of all holds currently waiting for pickup until further notice

Please do not worry about library fines during this period. We will work with you to resolve any issues.

Marina/Interlibrary Loan Services are suspended until further notice.

All MCPL book drops are now closed. Please hold your materials until we reopen.

We will not be accepting book donations at this time. Upon re-opening, we will notify customers on procedures for book donations.

Please call the County’s 311 service for answers to questions regarding Coronavirus testing and public health issues.

Montgomery County, we are here for you. While our physical locations are closed, you can still submit questions about your account via phone (240-777-0005) or email using mcpl.customeraccounts@montgomerycountymd.gov.

For questions about materials and services, you can submit questions via phone (240-777-0001) or email using our Ask-A-Librarian service.
