These measures are in response to local and statewide increases in the daily COVID-19 case rates and to slow the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate the impact on delivery of critical healthcare services in Alameda County. Library in-person visits are temporarily suspended until further notice. Curbside Pickup Service will continue to be available with expanded hours. Staff will monitor case rates and will resume indoor service when the situation improves. For more information, see the Library's Frequently Asked Questions.
