Extreme Weather Warning

The Aloha Community Library is not considered a cooling center! Due to the excessively hot conditions of late and a faulty air conditioner, the library may be subject to closure should temperatures exceed a comfortable and safe level for patrons and staff. Please be advised that the library will likely close on short notice if the interior temperature reaches 85 degrees or higher. This warning is in effect until such time as the air conditioner is repaired or weather conditions improve.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we deal with air conditioner repairs. In the meantime, visit the Washington County website for tips on how to stay cool during extreme heat situations or visit 211info.org to search for cooling centers in your area. Stay cool, Aloha!

ACL is now a holds pick up location!

Aloha Community Library is now a holds pick up location!  We are top of the list alphabetically when placing holds on wccls.org – easy to find!  Until our security gates are installed, all holds are kept behind the circulation desk.  What a great reason to visit with our friendly desk staff! 

Until further notice, materials owned by Aloha Community are still not holdable.  The silver lining of this is that we have some amazing best sellers and new movies available on our shelves!  Stop by for a visit!

Other services, such as holds pick up, wireless printing, and sending holds to other libraries, will be phased in over time as we adjust to the changes associated with joining WCCLS. Updates will be posted as they are available. Thank you for your patience and continued support of the library during this time!
