Important Update - January 25, 2021: In order to comply with updated security protocols for the school campuses on which they reside, on weekdays during the school year the outside wi-fi at Benton, Coleville and Lee Vining Libraries will be restricted to hours the library is open. It will continue to be available on weekends.
Beginning Saturday, December 19th, Mono County Library locations will be closed for onsite use until further notice. 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.
