In mid-December, Multnomah County Library resumed hold pick-up service at all of its locations. Patrons may again place items on hold and schedule check out appointments. They will be notified when items are ready and schedule pickup appointments online or by phone.
In addition, library materials can be returned to all book drops. Returned materials will be quarantined for 96 hours. Due to this process, there will be a delay in returned items being cleared from patrons’ accounts.
The use of wireless printing services at all locations has also resumed. Printing is free and there is a no limit on the number of pages. Instructions for wireless printing can be found at multcolib.org/mobile-printing.
Library buildings are not currently open for other services. The library will make changes as necessary and expand other public services and access over time as public health guidance and physical spaces allow.
The library offers a wealth of online resources and events and personal help by phone, email and chat.
