In an effort to help curb the spread of the Corona Virus our Library quarantines all returned materials for 96 hours. Library staff take extra care to safely bag materials and when combined with our approximate 2-day appointment period means most materials have essentially quarantined for 6 days. However, these steps are not infallible. If you are at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 you may wish to quarantine Library materials even longer.

The Book Returns at the Burlingame Main Library are open 24 hours a day.
