Library closure questions

How do I return books?

Book Drop is Open - 24 hours a day - On the corner of Central & Grand! Feel free to use the book drop any time day or night, back in its original location, next to the library at the corner of Central and Grand! We are checking it regularly to get those returned items off of your accounts. As a safety precaution, all returned items are checked in upon return, and then quarantined for 3 days before circulating again.
Pacific Grove Public Library is unable to accept book donations at this time. Please hold onto your donation until they can be accepted or phone Monterey Public Library for information on donating gently used books (no DVDs or Magazines) at (831) 646-3933. Contact the library if you have any questions about your account.
