City Services Adapting to Serve the Community – Public Library

September 11, 2020 

Despite the City’s buildings being closed to the public for health and safety reasons during the pandemic, City departments are working hard to provide services to the community. City employees are considered essential workers and while much of the City’s staff is working remotely, departments are finding safe and creative ways to extend services to residents and businesses in San Leandro.

Though all of the City’s library locations remain closed during the COVID-19 Shelter-In-Place, the Library staff is available to serve your information needs. The Library staff is available six days a week to answer your questions, help you find books and DVDs, and place items on hold for you.

City Suspends All Non Essential Services

March 17, 2020 

Libraries, Community Centers & Most City Facilities Temporarily Closed

Click on the COVID-19 response image at the top of this webpage or visit www.sanleandro.org/C19 for the latest information.

In accordance with the Alameda County Public Health Officer’s March 16 Order, all non-essential City-operated facilities will be temporarily closed to the public. Closures will include all City-operated libraries, community centers, aquatics facilities, and City Hall. Other functions such as the Permit Center, Business Licenses and the Public Works Services Center will be extremely limited. This action is expected to remain in effect through April 7th.

Essential services such as Police, Fire protection, and infrastructure maintenance will continue uninterrupted. The City will also be working hard with our partners in the non-profit sector to provide services to those who are in need.

Per the Public Health Officer’s order, the public is directed to shelter-in-place except when seeking to receive certain essential services, such as accessing healthcare, or acquiring food or other critical supplies. City leadership including the Mayor and City Council strongly encourage San Leandrans to adhere to the County’s directives to slow the spread of coronavirus and protect public health.

4:00 PMTeen Art Workshop

In the Spirit of both Filipino American HIstory Month and Halloween, we'll be creating postcards centered around the Babylans. They were important figures in pre-colonial communities in the Philippines as they had abilities to communicate with spirits, heal people, and divination which helped Datus/Leaders choose the correct path for their people.


As Halloween is the season for spirits, this Babylan is offering candles and food as a way to say , "Hey let's be friends and work together!".

In this workshop, I will be breaking down how artist Michele Cajes draws each element in the image and show techniques on how to color with color pencils and markers. Students are encouraged to be creative with their colors, use patterns and add words to the postcard!

Please register in advance and pick up a supply kit at the library during curbside pick up.
