Book Store, Online Sales & Book Sales Suspended
Until Further Notice


Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 all 26 Contra Costa County Library locations will close until further notice as a precaution to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community. Based on County and State "Stay At Home" orders, the closures are necessary to encourage social distancing and protect both patrons and staff in the libraries.

All Friends of the Library events are suspended until further notice. This includes the collection of donated books. We hope that you will save your book donations for us when we reopen. As of now, we anticipate the library will be closed until July 2021.


For the latest on library closures, please consult the Contra Costa County Library website at
