New Library Guidelines

Beginning Monday, January 3, 2022, the Library will move to Browse & Go Service during current operating hours.

The Library is committed to the health and safety of our staff and customers. The rapid spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant continues to present health and safety concerns and creates additional impacts on staffing. The adjusted service level is an effort to maintain sufficient levels of library service during operating hours. The Digital Library is available 24/7. 

  • Browse & Go Service: Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Computer use of up to one hour: Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 5:55 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. – 4:55 p.m.
  • To minimize the amount of time spent indoors, visits will need to be as quick and efficient as possible.
  • Per the Santa Clara County Health Orders, masks are required for all members of the public regardless of vaccination status. Everyone over two years of age must wear a face mask that covers the nose, mouth and chin at all times in the Library, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be available if you need one.
  • Please maintain six feet social distancing.
  • Stay home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.
