Resolve overdue fines and help those in need this holiday season through the “Food for Fines” program at SJCPLS. Beginning Monday, November 3, until December 21, up to $1 in overdue fines will be resolved for each sealed, non-expired, non-perishable food item donated. The donation waivers cannot be applied to fees for printing, lost items, or for credit against future fines. Don't owe fines? You can still participate by dropping off canned foods at any library branch or bookmobile stop. Together, all residents can help top last year’s collection of more than 14,000 donations.
Need a notary? SJCPLS is pleased to announce this new service, available at Bartram Trail, Hastings, Main, and Southeast branch libraries, beginning November 1.
While the Library strives to provide this service during all operating hours, it is always recommended that you call ahead to ensure a notary will be available when you visit your library location. A photo ID is required. The fee for notary service is $3.00 for each item notarized, with payment due at the time of service. Library Notaries will not provide service if the customer, document, or circumstances of the request for notary service raise any issue of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty. Library Notaries do not offer legal advice and they are not required to leave County property to perform notary services.
For more information, please review the complete Public Notary Service policy.

SJCPLS cardholders can now use Hoopla Digital to access an array of audio and video materials via streaming or temporary download on their computers, tablets, and smartphones. Zinio for Libraries is a digital magazine service that allows you to download digital copies of popular magazines to any Internet-enabled device.
We are very excited to introduce you to the latest additions of our extensive menu of electronic resources. We encourage you to give Hoopla and Zinio a try!
