Library Closed May 29

The Aloha Community Library will be closed all day Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day. Have a safe and happy holiday!

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!

Expanded Hours Begin Monday, January 9

The Aloha Community Library will open as a WCCLS member library with expanded hours beginning this Monday, January 9.

Monday, 10:00am-8:00pm
Tuesday, 10:00am-8:00pm
Wednesday, 10:00am-8:00pm
Thursday, 12:00-6:00pm
Friday, 12:00-6:00pm
Saturday, 10:00am-5:00pm.

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!
