The Novato Library will be closed starting March 7th for renovations.  The Novato Library is scheduled to reopen the first week of April.

The Novato Library will not be accepting returns during this time.  Library materials checked out prior to the closure will be given extended due dates.  Materials can always be returned to another library, anywhere in Marin County.  All materials placed on hold at Novato can be picked up at the South Novato Library during the closure.

All programs have been cancelled or rescheduled to the South Novato Library.   Please check the library’s website and calendar for latest information.

From March 11 – 30 the South Novato Library hours will be:

10-9       Monday – Thursday
12-5       Friday
10-5       Saturday

During the closure period the Novato and South Novato Libraries will not be able to accept book donations.   Donations can instead be dropped off at the Friends of the Marin County’s Book Place located at 1608 Grant Ave in Novato.

This renovation is made possible with funds from Measure A and was planned to respond to community needs.   High demand materials will be easier to access, there will be a single convenient information desk, more convenient and efficient check-out,  improved lighting and carpet and improved accessibility to the library.
