All Alpine Library Events, Programs, and Classes CANCELLED Through the End of March 2020

March 13, 2020 – Dear Alpine Library patrons,

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.

To limit the spread of infection, you should:

  • Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds to help protect you from germs.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available. It should contain at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you are sick, stay home and keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then wash your hands. For information and community resources, please call 2-1-1 San Diego or visit www.211sandiego.org or www.coronavirus-sd.com
