All in person events have been canceled due to the recent pandemic, we will be posting links to events that you may attend virtually along with resources to begin checking out physical materials.
We are currently in Phase 3 of our transitioning plan to reopen our branch while keeping everyone safe and maintaining social distancing measures as directed by our City Council and the CDC. We are still keeping Curbside Pickup Service open, we are offering Free Take & Make Craft Kits, and we are currently offering computer appointments while we are open.
Call us for appointments @ (210) 207-9140, your appointments must be scheduled a day in advance.
A few notes and things to expect when you enter the building:

To set up an appointment, give us a call 24 hours before you would like to use a computer. Staff can help you to make an appointment for a one hour computer session. Sessions are limited to one per day per person.
Appointments are limited to two people using one computer at a time. This is to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Areas of the library other than the computer stations cannot be accessed and collections are not available for browsing.
A library card is not required to use a computer, but we are asking our customers to follow a few guidelines:
If you need an accommodation, please speak with a staff member when you call to make the computer appointment.
Contact-free book pickup is not available during public computer sessions. Please wait until you receive a notice through email or phone informing you that your items are available for pickup. You can check your account online, or call your library. Please have your library card number available when you call.
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

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!
