Everyone has a story (or one or two or ten...) about why they love libraries and the impact libraries have had on their life.
We want to hear YOUR library story!
We are beginning to collect these reflections to eventually share on our social media and elsewhere. Don't worry, we will share them anonymously or we can use your first name only if you'd like; let us know what you prefer.
Please email email@example.com with your library story and any images you'd like to include.
Reminder: Outdoor Pickup
All Berkeley Public Library locations now offer Outdoor Pickup services!
No appointment is necessary for pickup. Outdoor pickup hours are as follows:
Outside Pickup is held in the doorway entrances of our Libraries with strict safety protocols in place. At Tarea Hall Pittman South, use the door adjacent to the Tool Lending Library. At North, use the back door on Josephine Street. At Central, use the historic entrance close to the intersection of Shattuck & Kittredge. For faster service, please have your library card ready.
Remember, face coverings are required for service as is 6 feet of social distancing between patrons.
Please use the return slots only to return your library books; do not hand them to staff at Outdoor Pick-up.
Return slots are open 24/7. All materials are quarantined for at least 72 hours before being checked in. As soon as staff check in your items following the quarantine period, your account will be updated.
A primary mission of Berkeley Public Library is to champion racial and social equity. The Library will continue to move forward on collection development, programming initiatives and policy reforms to support, reflect and serve our diverse Berkeley community.
