ATTENTION: All OC Public Libraries locations are closed until further notice.

To Our Patrons and Community: The health and wellness of our OC Public Libraries’ staff and customers is our main concern. Based on recommendations from the County of Orange and in concurrence with guidelines issued by the Governor of the state of California, all OC Public Library branches will be closed to limit the number of people in a public building and to help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

In this interim time, although our doors may be closed, there are many ways you can still connect with our library services. OC Public Libraries’ robust digital services give library card holders 24/7 free access to ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, resources and more.

Friends of the Library Bookstores are all closed. Bookstores are not accepting donations at this time.

For official updates about the coronavirus visit the OC Health Care Agency website.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to resuming full library services as soon as we can. Thank you for being a patron of the OC Public Library system.


Effective immediately, all library programs, classes and events are cancelled until April 30th. This also includes any scheduled meetings being held in library community rooms.
These safety measures are being taken out of an abundance of caution and to be consistent with Countywide recommendations for social distancing and to protect public health and slow the rate of transmission of COVID-19.
