Due to the COVID-19 Local Health Emergency
The Tuolumne County Public Library is modifying its policies and procedures for the duration of this health emergency. The Board of Supervisors has authorized the library to open up for curbside service.  We are currently in the process of coming up with the policies and procedures for that process and hope to have it up and running in the next week or so.  Please check back frequently for updates and new information regarding the closure and dates and times of Virtual Storytimes.
All material late fees will be waived during the library's closure.
If you need help accessing your library account please send us an email at
If you need a library card to access our online services please download and complete the Library Card Application form. You may also apply for your children. They can be mailed to and staff will process the information and mail a library card to your mailing address.

Tuolumne County Public Library is asking our wonderful community to please refrain from dropping off materials they wish to donate to the library. We do NOT have the staff needed to properly sanitize and sort these items. Thank you so much for your consideration and understanding during this COVID-19 health crisis.
