If you have received a notice of fines in your email, it may be for fines that have been on your account for a very long time, not for new fines. We have just begun sending out quarterly notices to patrons with outstanding balances on their accounts. We apologize for the confusion. Beginning now, you will receive these notices every 3 months. We do offfer online fine payment. Thank you.
Lawyers in the Library
Lawyers in the Library offers free legal information and referral. The program is co-sponsored by the Alameda County Bar Association (510-302-2222). If legal help is required, people are referred to the Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service or other agencies.
Sign up at 5:45 p.m. Names of those persons present will be called in order of sign-up.
Before coming, the library recommends calling the branch the same afternoon to confirm that a lawyer is expected.
