Have Questions?
We have some books we weren’t able to return before libraries closed, will we have fines?

No, all overdue fees have been eliminated across all Sacramento Library branches.

My student has read all the books we have at home already, how can we get more?

Let us be your virtual school library while you’re at home. You can check out up to 60 ebooks at a time with your library card and access our Homework Help resources.

You can also request reading recommendations or place a Personal Shopper request with our librarians, who would absolutely love to help you find some great books to enjoy at home as a family. Once your materials are ready, you can pick them up curbside.

Are there any library programs going on right now?

Join us for daily and weekly virtual programs including storytimes.
