Library

The newly expanded library will open Monday, May 24th at 9:00 a.m.

Patron access to the library stacks and computer lab will be unavailable beginning Monday, April 19th through May 23rd. This temporary closure will allow library staff and movers to prepare the library for the grand opening of our newly expanded building. We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and understanding. 

Library drive-through curbside service will continue to be available Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. until Friday, May 21st. Curbside service will close and be discontinued at 6:00 p.m. on May 21st.

To use the library’s curbside service place items on hold through the library catalog, via email at smpl@sanmarcostx.gov, or by calling 512-393-8200. You may request items by title, subject, or grade level. Items will be collected by library staff and you will be notified via email or telephone when items are ready to be picked up. When you arrive to pick up materials, call 512-393-8200 and staff will verify your identification, check out materials, and place them in your trunk at the back door of the new building, just past the drive-through drop off area.
