Modified Library Service Hours and Locations

Stanislaus County Libraries are closed temporarily. Modified services are available beginning March 23. Please see details below.

During the closure of Stanislaus County Libraries, we will offer modified services, so you can continue to access library materials and resources.

No-Contact Pick-up

We’ll offer no-contact pick-up of library materials following this procedure:

  • Place holds online or through the Stanislaus County Library app, or call us for recommendations and we will place the holds for you.
  • We’ll pull the materials and notify you when they are available for pickup.
  • When you arrive, call us and give us your library card number. We will check your items out to you.
  • While you stay in your car, we will place your items in the designated outdoor pickup location. To ensure social distancing, pick up your items once we go inside.

Returning Library Materials

Book drops are currently closed, but libraries are accepting returns to book carts outside. Please remove books from bags before placing on carts. Due to a large influx of books and to observe safe handling practices, please expect a delay of up to 10 days for this to be reflected on your account.
