Discontinuing Online Chat On May 29

We first offered online chat in March 2020 when our libraries closed due to the Pandemic. While it was a popular service, usage has been declining. Now that many of our libraries are open for limited visiting hours, we will discontinue online chat effective May 29 to devote more staff time to the services provided at our libraries.

We’re still here to answer your reference, account, and service questions. You can contact us by calling your local AC Library, emailing or texting Ask Us, or stopping by during limited visiting hours at our libraries.  

We welcome your respectful and on-topic comments and questions in this limited public forum. To find out more, please see Appropriate Use When Posting Content. Community-contributed content represents the views of the user, not those of Alameda County Library
