Modified Library Service Hours and Locations

Effective December 8, Stanislaus County Libraries will be offering modified, no-contact library services. Please see the guidelines below for current modifications to library services.

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 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.

Computer Appointments

  • Appointments are one hour, limited to one appointment per customer, per day.
  • Customers must wear a mask/face covering that covers both your nose and mouth the entire time you are in the library. Masks/face coverings are required for ages 2 & up per CA health order.
  • No food or drink is allowed in the library at this time.
  • Bring your library card to access computer and printing services.
  • Because library capacity is limited, we recommend only the customer using the computer comes to the library.
  • Printing is allowed. Customers receive $1.00 in free prints. (10 B&W or 4 color) Additional copies are allowed. Customers should bring exact change for Coin and Bill Acceptor for cash payments up to $5.00. Credit/debit cards may be used for payments over $1.00.

Senior Doorstep Delivery

Senior citizens may be able to receive doorstep delivery of library materials during the closure. Seniors should call (209) 558-7814 or their local branch library.

Returning Library Materials

The book returns are now open at most locations. Book returns at the Modesto and Salida Libraries remain closed. Materials may be returned to designated book carts in Modesto and Salida. Please remove books from bags before returning them. 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.

Digital Resources

As always, you can access our digital resources online at www.stanislauslibrary.org or call us for us for assistance by phone.
