Library Closure Notice (Español)

Dear Patrons,

We are writing with the latest update on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on library services. Following the recommendation of the County of San Luis Obispo Public Health Department to maintain aggressive social distancing, the County of SLO Public Libraries will close all libraries today, March 18 until further notice. During this closure, we will continually assess the developing situation to determine the length of the closure. 

  • During this closure all library programs, in-house services, and meetings are cancelled.
  • During this time, due dates for borrowed materials will be automatically extended, no late fees will be assessed, and patrons can return materials when libraries reopen. While you can return items to our book drops, please don’t worry about returning materials until we reopen.
  • Our digital library will remain open and available 24/7 at slolibrary.org. There you can enjoy  eBooksaudiobooksstreaming TV, movie and music serviceslearning classes and digital access to newspapers and magazines.

We will continue to post updates on our social media accounts and will remain in contact via our email newsletter. Your health and safety are of utmost importance, and we will evaluate and adjust as new information becomes available.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your continued understanding and support. For the most current information about the local response to COVID-19 please visit readyslo.org.
