Due to construction, the Ralph Ellison Library and Southern Oaks Library are providing curbside services only until further notice. Watch our website for updates about their reopening.

Due to the number of buildings still without power, all Metro Library locations will be closed Thurs, 10/29.


All Metro Library locations are in the "Grab & Go" stage. In this stage, customers can come into a library to use a computer, print/copy/fax/scan, and briefly browse the shelves. Masks are required for entry into library facilities. Customers without a mask will be served by curbside service. Click here for more information.
