IS YOUR BRAIN TIRED? DO YOU NEED A TIME-OUT FROM REALITY?
The pandemic, forest fires, politics, and personal issues can sometimes make it difficult to focus and sap your energy.

Your libraries are open for 'Call Ahead for Pick Up': Click here for specific details for how the "Call Ahead" service works. Basically you can use your Mono County Library Card to go to our online catalog - in the Quick Links section to the right - to place a hold on an item, or you can contact your local library staff by phone or email during regular hours. Contact information for your location can be found in the BRANCHES menu above. Your local staff member will confirm with you by phone or email the expected date/time for you to pick up your item(s), check them out ahead of time, and arrange them for you to pick up at the library's entrance through a safe contactless handoff. When you're done with the item(s), simply return it in the library's exterior book drop to maintain the contactless handoff and we will clean and quarantine the time for 4 days before reshelving it. We will continue to waive overdue fines during this period.
