Dearborn Branch

Temporary closing date: November 8, 2018

Reopening date: January 2019

In order to complete construction on the North Platte branches with as little downtime as possible, all three branches (Camden Point, Dearborn and Edgerton) will be temporarily closed at the same time. A closing date will be posted here when it has been determined, and Dearborn Branch customers will receive an email with closure date information approximately one month prior to the branch closing.

Holds and Returns


Before November 8, Dearborn Branch customers are asked to check out any items they have been notified are available at the Dearborn Branch for pickup. Any holds not picked up before close of business on November 7  will be transferred to:

Platte City Branch

Platte City, MO 64079  816.858-2322

After the closing date, Library materials that become available and were scheduled to be picked up at the Dearborn Branch will be transferred to and available at the Platte City Branch. If you would like your holds assigned to a different branch during this renovation, please call or visit any MCPL branch and ask a staff member for assistance in redirecting your holds to your desired location. 


The branch book drop will not be available for use while the branch is closed. Materials can be returned to the Platte City Branch or any MCPL location not closed for construction.


Dearborn Branch customers are welcome to attend storytimes at other MCPL locations during the branch’s closure.
