Hours and Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dear Patrons,

The safety of our patrons and employees is a priority to Fresno County Public Library (FCPL). We are working to stay on top of the evolving COVID-19 situation by following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, California Department of Public Health, and the Fresno County Department of Public Health.

FCPL is offering walk-in services and 24/7 services through our website. Branch hours of service may change on short notice. Please be sure to check the Closures listing, or call your local branch for current hours and any available curbside service accommodations and procedures if that option is best for you. Please continue reading to learn more about the service options available to you at this time and important information to know before visiting any FCPL branches. Check our Hours of Service to see what days and times your local branch is regularly open.

We will continue to communicate any further impacts to FCPL and will post updates on the Library's website.

Thank you for working with us to keep FCPL and Fresno County communities healthy.
