Grab and Go service
As part of its phased reopening plan, Hennepin County Library is offering new grab and go services for patrons, accommodating short in-person visits.
Grab and Go is available at the following libraries:
Grab and Go locations also offer use of library computers. Calling ahead to make an appointment will help ensure a computer is available for your visit. Many Grab and Go locations can accommodate same-day visitors with instant appointments as space allows.
All visitors to Hennepin County buildings are required to wear face coverings. Please review Hennepin County’s COVID-19 safety rules and protocols in preparation for your visit.
When you visit a Grab and Go location, it will look and feel different from an ordinary library visit. Pandemic precautions limit our ability to be a space for gathering, and we are limiting the total number of patrons and staff inside each building to allow physical distancing. If a library meets its capacity limit, patrons may be asked to wait outside until other patrons have departed. Library staff will be on-site to provide additional guidance to help make your visit successful.
Grab and Go services include:
- Retrieving of holds
- Limited browsing of materials
- Checking out items
- Quick reference support
- Returning of library materials
- Computer use (appointments are recommended)
Meeting rooms, study rooms, children’s play areas, and lounges will not be available for use at this time.
