San Diego County Library is closely following developments regarding the spread of the new coronavirus disease, or COVID-19. The County Public Health Office recommends the practice of social distancing—keeping people apart. Under the guidance of the CA Department of Public Health and San Diego County’s Public Health Office, we have decided to cancel all library sponsored and co-sponsored events, programs, and classes through the end of March. All 33 San Diego County Library branches will remain open for essential services during this time. San Diego County Library will continue to provide free access to computers, public wi-fi, and material checkouts.

To support increased demand, we are investing an additional $500,000 into our digital library collection, available 24/7 at www.sdcl.org/elibrary. Library cards offer free access to apps such as Libby for e-books and digital audiobooks, Flipster for e-magazines, as well as a wide range of online learning resources.

We are committed to keeping you safe and informed.
