As of June 24, MCBQ Lowered Health Protection Condition to BRAVO - HPCON-B. The Commanding General, Marine Corps University, has authorized the Marine Corps Research Library and Quantico Base Library to open in limited capacities.

Both Libraries will have different maximum patron capacities and levels of service, indicated below.

  • Our primary focus is to provide services while mitigating health risks to staff and patrons.
