“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic unfortunately requires us to make this decision,” said MCPL Director Anita Vassallo.  “I hope that we will be able to begin to restore our operating hours as the situation improves over the course of the year.”

Holds to Go! MCPL’s contactless holds pickup service will take place during the new hours. The adjustment to hours will make it possible to continue Holds to Go! at all branches.
