Lodi's downloadable library


under construction warning sign

UPDATE: Reopening will not be before Thursday, December 20.

Due to construction and air quality concerns, effective immediately the Lodi Public Library will be closed until further notice.

  • Monday's library board meeting will be at 5:30 pm at Lodi City Hall
  • All other events and programs have been cancelled through Wednesday, for now

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause - no fines will be assessed for any days the library is closed, and any holds that have arrived will be extended on our hold shelf for pickup once we are open.

If you need assistance from a librarian or have an immediate materials need, please contact another local library for assistance. Your library card is good-as-gold throughout South Central Library System.

Please check back to this space for updates on reopening, as news develops.

The library's annual holiday donations program has begun!

Stop in to browse the cart of materials and make your selections:

  • Donate the indicated amount
  • We'll add a personalized bookplate
  • You'll get the honor of first checkout
