We love our patrons, and we value your trust.   We have created this page to provide accurate and up-to-date information, and to communicate about the Library and its services and programs as the City makes decisions to best protect its citizens and the welfare of our community.

Out of an abundance of caution and to help limit the spread of the coronavirus, Central Library and all nine (9) branch libraries are closed  until further notice.  We want to share the steps the library is taking to provide essential library services during the closure:

  • During this time, due dates for all Pasadena Library materials borrowed before we closed (on or before March 17, 2020) have been extended to August 17. No late fines will be assessed, and patrons can return materials when libraries reopen.
  • Librarians are available to provide assistance through telephone reference (626) 744-4066; or the web-based service, Ask Us! (at  https://www.cityofpasadena.net/library/questions-help/), as well as via Live Chat.
  • Curbside Pickup service is currently available at all sites except Hill Avenue Branch and Villa Parke Community Center Branch. Information about curbside locations, hours, and how it works.
  • Our numerous digital services remain available 24/7 at https://www.cityofpasadena.net/library/, including e-books and audiobooks; streaming TV, movie and music services; classes and digital subscriptions to newspapers and magazines.
  • Visit our online calendar of events to find programs and events you can attend from home.
  • Visit our FAQ related to the closure for more information
    • Pasadena Public Library will no longer lend or fulfill holds for City of Glendale Library, Arts & Culture materials. For assistance with Glendale material requests, please contact Glendale Library, Arts and Culture at 818-548-2021.

Once again, your health and safety is of utmost importance, and we will evaluate and adjust as new information becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for your continued understanding and support.
