Dear San Bruno Library Patrons,

In compliance with the San Mateo County Health Officer’s order to shelter-in-place, the Library building is currently closed. However, library staff are here to help! Staff are answering phone calls and emails - (650) 616-7078, - Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM, to answer informational questions, assist with library accounts, and issue new library card numbers. The Library offers many online services free to San Bruno Library card holders and links are available on this page. To find out about our virtual programs, please visit and/or sign up for our online newsletter.

The Library bookdrop is open 24 hours per day, seven days a week and we are accepting returns of materials from all Peninsula Library System libraries. Returned items will be checked in within 7 days. San Bruno Library owned items checked out before December 11 will have due dates extended to February 1. Most other Peninsula Library System libraries have resumed the regular system of due dates and auto-renewals. No fines will be charged for overdue items during the building closure; however, items will be billed if they are kept beyond the maximum renewals.
