The library will be performing routine server maintenance this Saturday, February 16th, beginning at 6:15 pm. Access to library catalogs (CatalogPlus and Kids Catalog), EZ Login, Check My Account, and System Databases, including Overdrive, will be interrupted until the work has been completed. We anticipate access to be restored late Saturday evening. We apologize for the interruption in service.

Lyell Branch

The Lyell Branch Library is located in the Northwest Quadrant and serves a community of more than 30,000 residents. The building opened at its present location at the corner of Lyell Avenue and Avery Street in 1985; a meeting room was added several years later. The library features both on and off-street parking for patrons. The neighborhood association and other non-profit groups meet at the library throughout the year. A small Early Literacy Center provides a space for our young users to explore. A community garden space was started in the recent past.
