COVID-19 Update

Official word from OPL today: Effective Monday, March 16, the Oakland Public Library will close all Library locations, and these closures will remain in effect until further notice. This action was taken as a precaution to help limit the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Read their full statement here.

Due dates and holds will automatically be extended to accommodate the closure period. All drop boxes will be locked and unavailable during the closure – please keep any library items you have at home until the library re-opens.

All programs scheduled during the closure period have been cancelled.

Now is a great time to make use of the many digital services the library offers, including ebooks, movies, online newspapers, audiobooks, digital music and more. If you need help learning to use these services, please email us and we’ll try to set you up with a phone consultation with a volunteer to help you get started. (And if you’re home from work or school with some time on your hands and would be willing to volunteer some time on the phone helping people learn to use the library’s digital services, please email us about that, too.) We’ll get through this together.
