Ringer Library in College Station is currently undergoing major construction and renovations and closed November 5, 2018. Shelving was approved by city council on April 25, 2019. The library will be reopening in late August 2019. For construction updates, see the blog lower on the page.
While Ringer Library is closed, you can go to Mounce Library in downtown Bryan to pick up holds, check out items, and return items. Mounce is open Monday-Thursday 9 AM – 8 PM, Friday-Saturday 9 AM – 5 PM, and Sunday 1:30-5:30 PM, and there is a 24-hours drive-thru book drop outside. Mounce Library is located at 201 E. 26th St., Bryan, TX 77803, and the phone number is (979) 209-5600.
During Ringer Library’s closure, we also have an alternate book drop inside the CSISD Administration building. The CSISD Administration Building is located at 1812 Welsh, College Station, TX 77840, and the phone number is (979) 764-5400. This location is only for returns. To return library items at CSISD, go inside the CSISD Admin Building, Main Entrance, Door 1. There are boxes at the front desk receptionist’s desk inside the building. This alternate book drop is available Monday-Friday 8 AM – 4:30 PM except CSISD Admin holidays (closing early May 24, closed May 27). Starting Tuesday, May 28, the book drop in the CSISD Admin office will have summer hours: Monday-Thursday 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM and Friday 7:30 AM – 11:30 AM.
During the closure, Ringer Library staff are holding programs at off-site locations. For information about our programs, see www.bcslibrary.org/ringer or subscribe to our weekly electronic newsletter. Events are also listed on our calendar. The clickable online calendar lists “off-site” next to the programs we are having at other locations and CBMPL for events that are being held at Mounce Library. There is also a printable calendar available at the library or online, and it lists Ringer Library programs (and the off-site locations we are using) on one page and Mounce and Carnegie programs on the other side.
During the closure, staff may still be contacted electronically, and can generally be reached at the Mounce Library phone number, (979) 209-5600. The Ringer Library phone number, (979) 764-3416, is currently being forwarded to Mounce Library, so if you call Ringer Library before it reopens, it is not being answered in College Station.
