News & Events (Programs)


Please continue to use the COVID19 tab to see the latest information and look at our numerous resources during this crisis. Resources specifically for financial help during COVID-19 can also be found under our Databases & Resources tab. We have created a Library page specifically devoted to information about Library resources, recovery and evacuee resources, and the Greenville Branch related to the Dixie Fire.

All Libraries: We've added several new databases to the website - including the new e-book database Palace Project and information about the Dial-a-Story program! Check them out by scrolling to the bottom of the home page. We also now have state park passes you can borrow from your local branch.

All Libraries/Zip Book Program: The Zip Book Program has been expanded - you may now order up to eight (8) zip books per month, instead of four (4). All other rules still apply. 

Quincy: Scammers have spoofed the Quincy Library Branch's phone number of 530-283-6310. We will always leave you a voicemail if we are the ones to call. We will NEVER ask you for credit card information.

Fire Season & Other Disasters: Listos CA offers several disaster preparedness toolkits in a variety of languages - please check them out and get prepared before disaster strikes. You can check out your air quality here or here. Please also look at the County's Office of Emergency Services webpage for more information about how the county - and you - can prepare for emergencies. Firewise has plenty of resources for you and your community too.
