CLOSED to the Public


The library will be closed on Saturday, July 4th.  Curbside pick-up will not be available.

Curbside Hours

 Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 – 5:00


Saturdays from 9:00 – 2:00. 


The library is open for Curbside Pick-up.  What does that mean?  Although the library building will be closed to the public, you will still be able to check out Richmond items (Inter-Library Loan has yet to restart).  How will this work?  You can call the library during our curbside hours and request items or you can go online (https://bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/home) to place a hold.  If you go online, make sure to select Richmond from the drop-down menu.  After our library staff has received your request, we will call you to let you know your items are available.  We will check the items out to you and place them in a paper bag outside the door with your name on it.  At this time, we will also be taking returns.  Please place your library items in a paper bag and return them to the Richmond Library during our curbside hours which will be Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 – 5:00 and Saturdays from 9:00 – 2:00.  We are all looking forward to seeing you again!
