Mon. - Fri. 9 AM - 4 PM

The Memorial Branch Library s undergoing a $3.3 million renovation.  During this project, we are still offering curbside pickups of holds and free take and makes.  Unfortunately, the library does not have computer services, printing or copying, or browsing of our materials during the renovation.

Curbside pickups are across the street at National Archives Marianist Province (3141 Culebra Rd.) on the St. Mary's University campus.  You may continue using the catalog to order items to pickup, or call us at (210) 207-9140 to request your items.

Curbside hours of operation are:
Monday - Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Visit our Facebook Group for continued updates of the renovation!

Before moving to the National Archives at STMU, curbside pickups during the renovation was offered from the Library on the Go bus. Here is a sneak peek into our former life on the bus!


I hope you enjoy this little piece we made about life on the bus.
