Merriam Park Library Closed November 14 – 24

Due to unanticipated issues with a boiler replacement and an inability to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the building, Merriam Park Library will be temporarily closed starting November 14 and is expected to reopen on Friday, November 25. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Here's what you need to know to help you through the temporary closure:


For items that were placed on hold and are ready for pick-up at Merriam Park on or prior to November 14, please email Merriam Park Library at, opens a new window and indicate a different library location for pick-up.  

You can pause your holds or choose a new pick-up location for your items. Visit the Holds page in your account to pause or change pick-up locations for your holds. Read more about pausing holds. To change your pick-up location, click the location name and then choose a new location. Please note that holds items that are already being held or in-transit cannot be modified.

While Merriam Park Library is temporarily closed, you will not be able to choose Merriam Park as a pick-up location. After the library re-opens you can change the pick-up location to Merriam Park.

You can also use the For Later shelf in your account to keep track of items you would like to put on hold later.


The exterior book drop at Merriam Park will be closed while the building is temporarily closed.
