How to Check Out Books at MCPL!

We want to make sure all MCPL patrons have access to our materials while branches are closed for browsing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Log onto our website at to find all electronic resources, and place books on hold for pickup at your local branch.

Our librarians created a presentation on how to check out books, in English and in Spanish, if you’re new to the online process or need a refresher. Access these presentations below, and learn how to find your next favorite book (print, audio or e-book), cd, movie or event!
