Our library is for everyone. We are a free resource helping our community connect, create, and learn.
We offer free access to a wide range of materials including books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and we can borrow materials from other libraries for you. And we are a busy place! Last fiscal year there were 633,920 visits to the library, 57,267 attendees at library programs, and you checked out 1,338,714 items.
In addition to our physical collections, we offer 24/7 virtual access to ebooks, research databases, language learning tools, homework help, and test preparation materials. We offer a wide range of classes and programs for all ages including baby story times, preschool reading readiness, parenting workshops, an ESL conversation club, and a large variety of educational and creative programs for adults and teens. Our bookmobile also makes weekly visits throughout the community.
We have an exciting year ahead of us as we remodel the library to better meet your needs. This construction has begun and should be complete by the end of the fiscal year. You can track our progress here: www.mountainview.gov/libraryremodel
