Mendocino County Library branches and mobile services closures have been extended past the original date of April 6th until further notice. Book drops are closed and locked, and you are encouraged to keep your materials borrowed from the Library until it is reopened. All due dates on materials are extended.

Karen Horner, County Librarian, says, “It is a difficult decision to close libraries at any time, and the Library will continue to respond according to Public Health Orders. During this time, it is best to close until our communities and the staff are no longer at risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. We are glad to be able to provide online services until we are able to reopen.”

The Library staff are striving to support our communities in creative and dynamic ways and are available Monday through Friday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm to answer questions via branch phone numbers. The Library is also increasing the checkout limits of various online resources such as Overdrive, and Zip Books, which deliver to your home, have increased limits.

Please follow us on social media ( and on our website ( for updates, resources to access and fun tips to stay positive as we work together as a community through this difficult time. For more information, please contact the Mendocino County Cultural Services Agency at (707) 234-2875.
