Merchants' Square Main Library Is Now Open
The Merchants’ Square Main Library (2140 E. 116th St) is open Monday-Thursday 9am-7pm and Friday-Saturday 9am-4pm. Curbside holds pickup is available at this location Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday-Saturday 9am-4pm.
Checked-out items can be returned at the inside dropbox in the Merchants' Square Main Library lobby. We will have an outside return option at this location soon, but at this time returns are only accepted inside while the library is open. (We have paused overdue fines until November 1, so you have extra time to bring back your checked-out items. You may also return items at any time using the drive-up returns slot at the West Branch.)
Holds that were placed with the Main Library as the pickup location may now be picked up at the Merchants' Square Main Library when they are ready. When you receive a notice that your Main Library hold is available to pick up, you may choose to either come inside the Merchants’ Square Main Library to check it out or use our curbside holds pickup service. Find details about curbside holds pickup here.
As work continues on internet connectivity at the Merchant’s Square Main Library, public computers, printing and scanning, and WiFi are not yet available. We will update this information when those services resume.
The library’s coronavirus measures remain in place. Masks are required to enter the library. Grab-and-go visits are encouraged, and seating options are limited at this time. Please review our Guidelines for Safe Library Visits for more details.
The Merchants' Square Main Library will operate for the two years that construction takes place to expand and renovate our Main Library at 55 4th Ave SE. Learn more about the Main Library project here.
