Custom Book Bundles!
o0Qqw21-0NI-2Would you like a librarian to put together a stack of books for you to check out? We'd be delighted to! We know it's hard to pick out books if you can't come in to browse, so we're here to help. Please fill out the form, give us a day or two, and we'll put the books on hold for you. When the items are ready for pickup, you will receive an email or notice in the mail.

Take me there!


Wish List
Untitled-4Funds for library materials were cut from the City budget due to the devastating impact of COVID-19 last year, and this year they are just 50% of what they were pre-pandemic. We have a Wish List of titles our budget can’t support but which the community has requested. If you would like to help by gifting them to our collection, and like the item held for you when it’s ready to circulate, please put your library card number on the gift receipt. You can also order from another vendor or donate new releases not on this list. A librarian reviews donations based on our Collection Development policy before adding them to the collection. Questions? contact ksmith@monterey.org
