Bellingham Library Locations & Hours

Bellingham Public Library has 3 locations: Central Library, Fairhaven Branch and Barkley Village Branch. All locations are currently closed for in-building services. Physical library materials are available to the public through our Curbside Holds Pickup Service at the Central Library. Browse our collection online to place a hold on materials, then schedule an appointment for pickup during the hours listed below. Returns are also collected at the Central Library 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Bellingham Public Library is following Washington’s Safe Start Plan, which allows libraries to reopen in Phase 3. Additional staffing needs for the Curbside Holds Pickup Service and the current Remodel of the Central Library first floor prevent us from opening in Phase 2. More details are explained in our list of Library Reopening Frequently Asked Questions.
