During the time the library is closed due to COVID-19, we have access only to ebooks. Here are a few ways to find ebooks:
- eBook Collection by EBSCOhost
- During COVID-19 closures, restriction on multiple simultaneous use has been lifted on a case-by-case basis. Some publishers are still restricting access to one person at a time.
- Gale eBooks (contains reference books and specialized encyclopedias; great for background research on topics)
- Check out our guide on finding ebooks
Use your Stanislaus County Library card to check out eBooks using the Hoopla app (FREE)
- The Stanislaus County Library is also offering modified services; you can place a book on hold and pick it up curbside. See their Modified Hours for more info.
Use your San Joaquin County Library card to check out eBooks using Overdrive (FREE)
Create a free 30-day trial membership on Kindle through Amazon and use the free credit to purchase eBook (FREE but must have valid credit card on file in your Amazon account).
