SERVICE UPDATE: Grab & Go Service and New Curbside Pickup Hours

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 to limit the number of people in a public building and to help curtail further spread of COVID-19 in our communities, OC Public Libraries is pleased to offer Grab & Go service starting September 22. Bookdrops and contactless curbside pickup are still available.
