In accordance with the new Shelter in Place order issued by Alameda County, our libraries will remain closed through its end on May 3rd.
During this closure, our book drops will be closed. We are asking Library members to hold onto library materials until we have reopened. Members' accounts will not become blocked due to overdue items. There are no fines on overdue materials and library due dates on all checked out items this year have been extended until June 1st. We are unable to process holds on items while we are closed. Holds are suspended from both the new and classic catalogs.
We will remain open 24/7 at www.aclibrary.org and will be expanding our online offerings. A Quick Start Guides tutorial for our online materials, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, and more is available on the sidebar of our eLibrary.
Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time. We look forward to welcoming you back to Alameda County Library.
Posting signage with recommendations on how to stay healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19 at all library locations.
Elevating cleaning and sanitizing measures in all public areas.
Removing high-touch items from service areas such as headphones, VR headsets, board games, pillows, plush animals and toys.
Note, the Library does not currently disinfect borrowed materials when they are checked in or used in-house. Disinfecting these types of items and materials is currently not recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
