Redwood City Public Library to begin phasing back in services June 1

in A&E/Featured/Headline

The Redwood City Public Library will begin phasing in library service on June 1, with bookdrops open at the Downtown Library to accept returns and a “small crew” back to process them, Library Director Derek Wolfgram announced in a newsletter.

“We are also in the planning stages for the next phase, which will be curbside pickup of your holds,” Wolfgram said. “If all goes according to plan, this will be offered at the Downtown Library beginning June 15. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information.”

All Redwood City Public Library locations have been closed during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders and shifted to solely online resources for cardholders. Due dates for all materials, including WiFi hotspots, are extended through July 31, and no overdue fines will be charged for any items currently checked out. While library events are canceled, check here for online events.
