Grab and Go service
Most Hennepin County libraries are open to patrons for short visits. See participating libraries and hours.
All visitors to Hennepin County buildings are required to wear face coverings that cover both mouth and nose.
Face coverings can include a paper or disposable face mask, a cloth face mask, a scarf, a bandanna, a neck gaiter, or a religious face covering. A face shield alone is not sufficient. Visitors who wear a face shield are required to wear a face covering underneath it.
If you are feeling sick, do not visit the library.
With Grab and Go you can:
- Pick up holds
