OLL Limited Reopening

September 21

For now the OLL will be open for library material checkout and return, as well as for purchasing a new or renewing membership. The OLL Board will be reassessing on a regular basis to determine when additional services can safely be offered. Here are the details:

  • Hours: 10 am -1 pm , Monday through Saturday


  • To check out materials:

    • Step 1: Search for materials in the catalog on the website. Click Here to go to the catalog. 

      • Copy an item you find into an email or simply write down the title and author.

      • If you’re unable to use the catalog or would like some help making your selections, call the library (951 518 7077) and someone will assist you or return your call as soon as possible.

    • Step 2: Email or call at least 48 hours in advance of when you want to pick up your materials:  /   951 518 7077

      • We will need this information: 1) title and author of each item desired, and 2) the member’s first and last name, and 3) how to contact you (if you’re leaving a phone message).

      • Note that orders requested after 1 pm on Fridays and over the weekend will be ready for pickup on the following Tuesday.

    • Step 3: Pick up your materials!

      • Please pick them up at the library entrance within five days of when you requested them.

      • You must be wearing a mask over the nose and mouth and have your temperature taken when approaching the door. Sanitize your hands before touching anything (we’ll have sanitizer available!).


  • To return materials:

    • Please return materials within the checkout period. The checkout period may be renewed twice through email, phone or in person.

      • Two ways to return materials:

        • Bring them to the door of the OLL during open hours

        • Place them in the drop box at the street entrance gate


  • We invite you to renew your membership or join the OLL using either the Online Store or coming to the library.

If you currently have library materials, please return them so others can use them.
