The shelves at the Sequim Branch Library are jam-packed with books, magazines, DVDs, and audio books. Come visit the library during Grab and Go service hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., to browse the shelves for interesting titles to take home and enjoy.
Library staff are excited to welcome community members back inside the library again! It’s been a long year.
Curbside service will continue to be available Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Providing both curbside and in-library service is a bit of a challenge at the Sequim branch because of the entrance layout. If you prefer curbside pickup during Grab and Go hours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings, please plan on allowing extra time.
The best time for curbside pickup is during curbside-only hours: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturdays, 1-4 p.m.
Service hours will continue to be adjusted as the library is able to expand services.
One temporary change patrons will notice at the Sequim branch is the method for holds pickup. Patrons will request their holds from staff at the checkout desk; self-serve holds pickup is currently not available due to space constraints.
Self-checkout stations are located in two separate areas to allow for adequate distancing.
For now, Grab and Go visits are limited to 15 minutes or less. Masks are required for everyone entering the building and maximum occupancy is 25 percent.
When returning library materials, items should be placed in the outdoor book drop bins before entering the library.
All indoor returns are currently closed at the Sequim Branch.
Laptops are available for a two-hour checkout period during curbside library hours for use outside of the library; public computers are not yet available inside the library.
Peruse the periodicals
All magazine issues are available for checkout at this time, including current issues. If you haven’t browsed the magazines, consider exploring what’s available. Magazines at the Sequim branch include Alaska, Canadian Geographic, Cook’s Country, National Geographic Kids, The Sun, Vanity Fair and This Old House, along with dozens of additional titles.
You can also place holds on specific issues through the online catalog at nols.org.
