Library buildings are closed and there are no fines until further notice. We are open online 24/7 and are offering Contactless Pickup for holds.


We’ve missed you! We are working to get holds to you as quickly as possible. Please wait for notification that your holds are available for Contactless Pickup – if you have specific questions, please call your local branch.
All returned materials are quarantined for a minimum of 96 hours and may cause a delay in items being removed from your account and/or holds becoming available. No fines will be charged until further notice. We appreciate your patience. For more information about CCPL's phased reopening, please visit our Reopening Roadmap
