The bookdrop at Burnett Library is currently out of order—swing by Dana, Harte, Twain, or any of our other locations to return library materials after hours. 

Face coverings must be worn by all patrons, except children under the age of 2, when in library buildings. This requirement is in accordance with the most recent Health Order from the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.
