Anaheim Public Library Update

We’re temporarily closed as we do our part but we’ll be back soon and will keep you updated on our reopening!

We've transformed library services such as modifying borrower guidelines and developing alternate services to better serve residents during the Anaheim Public Library’s closure.

We know how important books, programs, and Library resources are for you, especially during these difficult times.

That’s why we are offering other options such as curbside pick-up, virtual programs on social media and phone assistance to better serve the community.

Virtual programs

While our in-person library programs are on hold, we are offering many virtual programs for all ages on the Library's Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

Programs include storytimes, cooking demos, STEAM Adventures, and more. 

We’re also providing art supply kits for families to participate in STEAM activities at home, which stands for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

Call your neighborhood branch to learn how to get a free STEAM Adventure Kit.
