In response to recommendations made by the California Department of Public Health and as a precaution to help limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), in-person services are temporarily suspended and all State Library locations are closed to the public. State Library cardholders may request to pick up collection items through Curbside Service. The Braille and Talking Book Library has resumed limited mail circulation service. Email reference services are still available in all Library sections, and requests may be submitted via Ask-A-Librarian. The State Library is constantly monitoring this evolving situation and will make changes as necessary as new information becomes available. The California Library Association and the State Library also offer a resource page for public libraries.
