SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY, Calif. - Beginning May 4, the County of San Luis Obispo Public Libraries will offer Grab & Go service at six locations.

Grab & Go service allows visitors to enter the building for browsing, holds pickup, and to use the Library's computers.

Per State and County health guidelines, face coverings will be required, and patrons will be asked to limit visits to 30 minutes.

The library reduced its services and closed some branches in January as most of its staff were deployed as Disaster Service Workers to support the County Public Health Department's COVID-19 testing sites, call centers, and contact tracing teams.

"Many of our staff have returned from County COVID-19 assignments so we are now able to offer more than the front door service we've had since January," said Erica Thatcher, Engagement and Marketing Coordinator for the Library. "We look forward to having our doors open again and to welcoming everyone back inside."

Grab & Go service will be available at the Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Nipomo, and San Luis Obispo libraries Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The library expects to open more branches and to fine-tune business hours when more staff returns from County assignments.
