Other Libraries Useful Nearby Libraries for LPC Students

Most libraries have a website. Most also provide access to their online catalogs over the web and offer interesting links to other Internet resources.

Link+ is a borrowing program among many libraries in California and Nevada that allows patrons to borrow materials from all member libraries. If your local library is part of the system, you may electronically request an item not available at your own library and it will be delivered to you for check-out.

Some nearby libraries participating are Alameda County Libraries (Dublin, Castro Valley, Fremont, etc.), Berkeley Public Library, CSU Libraries, Livermore Public Library, Pleasanton Public Library, and San Francisco Public Library. If you have a valid library card from one of these libraries, you may request and borrow items from any one of the member libraries in this list and it will be delivered to your library for pick up in 2 to 4 days.
