Current Library Services
Library services are available. This page describes the services available to the community.
As of Monday, March 8, most Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) locations offer lobby service in addition to contactless curbside service Monday through Saturday. These options are offered at the Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Altos, Milpitas, Morgan Hill and Saratoga Libraries during specific hours (see hours schedule), and are described in detail lower on this page. Please Note: The Campbell Library offers curbside and walkup service.
Library services are continuously evolving with the changing state and county health and safety protocols. Many library staff are serving as Santa Clara County Disaster Service Workers to fulfill this critical need in the County. The Library District is exploring what services we can safely and effectively offer with a smaller team. Unlike retail stores, the Library has thousands of items going out and returning daily which requires more space and expanded safety protocols.
Returned items are quarantined for 24 hours to protect the health and safety of both Library staff and patrons. Please allow up to 4 days for returned items to be removed from your account. No late fines are incurred for any items returned. Items overdue more than 4 weeks will be considered lost and replacement fees will be assessed. Returning lost items will clear charges. Please Note: All existing late fines (except for lost materials that have not been returned) were removed in January 2021. You will not incur any new fines as of January 1, 2021. All late fines from before January 1, 2021 have been forgiven.
For students, the Library offers a wide variety of online study, research and entertainment resources. The SCCLD Student eAccount offers all public school students in our District free access to digital sources and ebooks for homework help and fun reads!
Our online library (for all ages) is available to you 24/7 from the comfort of your home, or anywhere you have an internet connection. And speaking of internet connection, Santa Clara County Library District has added free Wi-Fi in the parking lots of the Campbell, Cupertino, Gilroy, Los Altos, Milpitas, Morgan Hill and Saratoga Libraries.
