A Cooperative Service Provided by the Public Libraries In Jefferson County, Alabama.

Update regarding library service in Jefferson County.

Update for 4/1/2020. We have extended the due dates for all library materials to May 1.

With the temporary closure of Alabama public schools and following federal and state recommendations to avoid clusters of population within a space, many of our local libraries have temporarily suspended public access to the library facilities. The services available at the libraries vary based on decisions made by their respective city and library administrators. For the most up-to-date information regarding the services available at your local public library, please contact your local library directly.

What about my checked out items?

All items that had due dates before April 15 May 1 were changed to be due on April 15 May 1. We recommend that you hold on to the library material for the time being. If you are looking to dropoff library material in the near future, please check with your local library to see if they will accept returns at this time.

What about my holds?

Holds will be kept at the library until the libraries reopen for public access. Some of the libraries are offering curbside service for you to pick up holds. Please contact your local library to see if they are offering a curbside pickup service.

Can I still request items from other libraries?

You can request but there is no delivery at this time.  You hold will stay there until we reopen and it can be filled.

What if my library card is expiring?

Library cards will not expire before April 15 May 1. You can also renew your library card for the full 2 years online.

What library resources can I access?

There is a wealth of resource available to you 24/7.

What if I do not have a library card?

Get a temporary e-card.

What if I still need help?

Your local library is the best source of up-to-date information. If you still have questions, send an email to Tobin Cataldo at tobin.cataldo@jclc.org.
