San Rafael Public Library

During the current public health crisis, the City of San Rafael remains committed to protecting the health and safety of community members and employees, while also striving to deliver public services to the greatest extent possible.

Our buildings are closed, to public entry, but we’re now offering curbside pick-up of materials; find out how you can access curbside service. We’re also working hard to move programs and services online, and finding creative ways to reach all San Rafael residents, particularly those who are most vulnerable.

Check-out Your Curbside Library newsletter to learn about upcoming programs and services. Subscribe to receive our newsletters via email.

We’re also connecting with our community via social media.
