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 are closed to limit the number of people in a public building and to help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our communities.

  • Book drops will be closed at all library locations. All due dates will be extended. No fines will be accrued, and all fees will be waived.
  • Holds will remain at library branches until regular service resumes. You will not be able to pick up a hold, but it will be waiting for you when we’re open once again.
  • For general questions, please contact the branch of your choice. For additional support, you may contact
  • No card? No problem! Visit for a digital card that gives you access to a wide variety of downloadable media!
  • Digital services will remain available! 24/7 free access to ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, resources, and more!
  • Friends of the Library Bookstores are closed.  Bookstore locations are not accepting donations at this time. Please do not leave unwanted materials outside libraries or Friends of the Library bookstores.
