Welcome to the new Santa Clara County Library District’s website! Many people have worked for over a year on a friendly, useful design, and we hope that you like it. Besides a new, fresh look, we have also moved to a site architecture that will be much easier to maintain. You will also find a variety of staff blogs – we will be sharing news on library services, events, and reviews of what we are reading and watching. 24/7 access to our virtual library is at the heart of our website. 

Search our catalog, reserve a book, share a comment with other readers, research using our exceptional collection of online databases, work with a tutor, ask a librarian for help, or download a song!

The Santa Clara County Library District will be celebrating its 100th birthday in 2014. Behind a new look, I know you will find the same enduring commitment to excellent library service. Our logo blends the look of books on a shelf with a cityscape using the colors of our valley. Public libraries are as timeless as they are contemporary places for ideas and innovation. I welcome your comments and suggestions.


- Nancy Howe, Acting County Librarian

I learn best by viewing or listening to information. A You Tube video would be wonderful.

Old Web site

I have no comment on the new site, but I prefer the old site. Please provide a way to go to the old web site on your new web site.



Site Map

There is not a proper site map, but there is a site guide to help you navigate the transition from the old site to the new site < http://www.sccl.org/about/library-news/sccld/blogs/administration-blog/2... >. Please let us know what you are not finding and we can direct you to the proper page. Thank you very much for the feedback. /Nancy

Really love the new website. I have a question though. Why hasn't the page for Overdrive been updated? It still has the old look on it. Hopefully it'll be changed soon. Still, great update


Thank you for the feedback! We are currently revamping our Overdrive site so that it mirrors our new website in both look and feel. This should be completed by the end of next week. /Nancy
