The Monroe County Library System is pleased to announce the beginning of touch free curbside services.

Governor Whitmer’s recent Executive Orders 2020-110 and 2020-97 will allow most branches of the Monroe County Library System to begin offering curbside service as of Monday, June 8, 2020.

“We are eager to provide curbside service to our patrons and move to the next phase of re-opening,” said Nancy Bellaire, Director of the Monroe County Library System. “We appreciate the support and patience of our community during this time.”

About Curbside Services

Dropbox and Returned Items
