New Year, New Website, New URL Launches Today

SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – The Santa Clara County Library District (SCCLD) is proud to announce the launch of a brand new, completely redesigned website. The new website,, will feature new pages that have been greatly enhanced to help patrons find, discover and experience the many things SCCLD has to offer. Patrons that are familiar with the online catalog will be happy to find the online catalog remains the same.

“Our website averages 126,000 unique visitors every month,” County Librarian Nancy Howe said. “Because we are in the heart of Silicon Valley, it is essential we offer a 21st Century experience for our patrons with innovative services and a robust online library.”

Main areas of the website include Feature Titles, where users can discover great books, music, and movies. Online Library 24/7 gives users access to eBooks, Audiobooks, eMagazines & News, eMovies & eMusic, and dozens of online research services. Learn 24/7 is a great resource to help students and adults with free online tutoring, test prep and online courses. Patrons can discover our libraries’ happenings with a new calendar system under Events. There are also dedicated pages to Kids & Families, as well as Teens. The Services page helps users access account information, plus learn about our passport services, English as a Second Language classes, and more. Finally, patrons are encouraged to explore our Connect page to engage with the Library and keep up to date with Library news.

Ahead of the website launch, in December, SCCLD allowed users to preview the new site, and has produced a number of video tutorials to help patrons familiarize themselves in navigating the new website. Library district residents who don’t have a library account can get a free digital library card instantly as part of the new online eCard service.
