How do I make donations to the Library?

Donations

The entire community benefits from your donation of materials or funds and your Library is grateful that you think of us. Thank you for your generosity!

  • Cash. For a one-time donation of funds to the Contra Costa County Library, please use the PayPal donation form or the paper form if you prefer to mail a check.

  • Books. Begin at your Community Library.  Community Library staff use many criteria when assessing donations to add to the collection. Age and condition of a title, intended audience, size of collection to which the title is being donated, specific community need, alternative means to access a title, and other factors play a role. Staff balances these criteria against the cost of owning the material (cataloging, processing, other staff costs, and storage costs) in accordance with the Library's Collection Development Plan.

  • Books for Friends Groups. Many of the Community Libraries are supported by Friends of the Library groups that work closely with library staff to accept & process donations. In many cases, Friends groups are offered materials for book sales. The Friends of the Library run these sales in order to generate funding for new books and library programs. Visit your Friends of the Library page to find a description of what kinds of books your local Friends group accepts.                                                                                                       

  • Bestsellers. If you purchased a copy of the latest bestseller and you're finished reading it, please consider donating it to your Community Library. Help your neighbors by helping your Library meet the demand for the latest titles!

  • Juvenile Hall. If you would like to buy a new book and donate it to the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility or  Juvenile Hall Library, please use their wish list on Amazon.

  • Brentwood Library has its own Memorial and Honor Book program. You can make your request over the phone, in person or by printing out the form and mailing or faxing it in.

  • Leave a Library Legacy! If you wish to discuss a gift to the Library, please call the County Librarian at 925.608.7700.
    If you are planning to include the Contra Costa County Library in your will, you should also consult your attorney.

 

All contributions to the Contra Costa County Library are tax deductible.

After reviewing the guidelines for donations at your local library do you still have other items you would like to donate?

How do I pay online with a credit or debit card? (online payment | e-commerce)

 

Payments can be made online using a Visa or MasterCard credit card, or with a signature debit card which display the Visa or MasterCard logo. 

Signature debit cards can be used at the point of sale like a credit card, however the payment is linked directly to a bank account rather than a line of credit.

IMPORTANT: Payments that are declined when using a debit card as a credit card will remain unavailable for several days as it takes the bank several days before the transaction is reconciled by the bank and hard-posted to the account. For declined transactions, the funds WILL BE RETURNED to the account after several days.

Regular debit card payment with PIN is not currently available. Staff are not able to process credit card transactions at the service desk.

What happens when my items are overdue?

If you have items overdue, the Library follows this process:

  • 10 days overdue: Library sends overdue notice by email, phone, or U.S. mail
     
  • 30 days overdue: Overdue items are now set to Lost status and a $10.00 processing charge is assessed. Library sends a bill by U.S. mail for lost items. The account is blocked.
  • 60 days overdue and considered lost:  Account balances of $50.00 or more are sent to a materials recovery agency Unique Management Services (UMS, aka Unique National Collections); and a $10.00 materials recovery fee is added to the library card account to cover that cost. UMS will attempt to contact the cardholder or their parent (if cardholder is a minor), both by phone and U.S. Mail.  Accounts will remain in collections until overdue materials are returned and/or outstanding fines and fees are paid in full, and any remaining account delinquencies are otherwise resolved.

.

 
 

Goodbye to Fines

When will fines be eliminated?

The Library eliminated fines beginning on January 1, 2019.

Why is the Library eliminating fines?

Eliminating fines removes barriers for our community and makes access easy, equitable, and enjoyable for everyone. Our doors are open for the entire community to take advantage of all the Library has to offer. Ending the collection of overdue fines will also result in more positive customer interactions.

If there are no fines, how will the library recover books and other materials that have been checked out?

We have eliminated overdue fines, but not the charges associated with damaged or lost materials.  Checkout periods for library materials have not changed and we expect patrons to return items to the library on time.

If an item is not returned within 30 days after its due date a lost charge and $10 processing charge will be assessed.  If the billed item is returned in good condition, the lost and processing charges will be removed from the account.  If the lost item is returned in good condition within one year after the lost and processing charges have been paid, you may request a refund of the lost charges; however, the processing charges cannot be refunded once they have been paid.

Will the elimination of fines impact the Library’s budget?

Fines and charges make up only slightly more than two percent of the library’s total budgeted revenue. Revenue from fines has decreased significantly in the last several years and we don’t expect the elimination of fines to have any impact on library operations.

What about the balance on my account from before the elimination of fines?

All charges on all accounts prior to the elimination of fines have been waived to give everyone an opportunity to restart their relationship with the library.  

Do I get a refund for late fines I recently paid?

No. Fines paid before the new fines and charges schedule was approved are not refundable. We thank you for your support of the Library.

Will the Library still send reminders about returning materials?

Yes.

I always considered my fines as a donation to the Library. How can I continue to support the Library financially?

  • Donate books or become a member of any of the Friends of the Library groups at our 26 branches. Money raised by the Friends from sales at their bookstores supports the Library.
  • Some Community Library Foundations and some Community Library Friends groups are registered as a 501(c)(3) California nonprofit organizations. The Library and these two support organizations are considered qualified charitable organizations for tax purposes by the IRS. Your contributions may help lower your income tax bill.

What about teaching a sense of responsibility to children?

Libraries have traditionally been viewed as a place charged with teaching responsibility and consequence, but that has never been part of our mission. We believe what’s most important is getting more books in the hands of the children who need them most.

The mission of the Contra Costa County Library is to bring people and ideas together. Our strategic goals focus on easy and equitable access, literacy, high-quality customer service and promoting the value of the library.

All library materials will still have the same checkout periods. We still expect books to be returned on time. Any materials not returned 30 days after the due date are considered lost and patrons will be charged for them.

Will I have to wait longer for my holds?

Customers who enjoy popular materials through holds or the Lucky Day collection, visit the library frequently. They tend to turn materials over quickly, because they read, watch, or listen to items and are eager to move on to something new. We do not anticipate a problem with avid users returning materials on time.


How do I find information on a property (parcel number, APN, map, zoning)?

You can look up a property on Contra Costa County's property mapping database, CCMAP.   

1. From the County Assessor's site, browse to Maps & Property Information, then CCC Mapping Information (or go directly to https://ccmap.cccounty.us for information on individual parcels.

2. Enter street address:  for example 2530 Arnold Dr

3. Click on the address link that is returned.

4. Click on the "identify" icon on top menu:  

5. On the map, click on the property you are interested in:

 6. Parcel information will appear on the right.  Links to Property Tax info and Assessor's map for parcel are also included.

7. For Zoning information, click on the "LAYERS" option on top menu and check the box next to "Zoning".

  • if the property is in an unincorporated zone, this will be indicated in the property info on right side of screen. 
  • e.g.
  • or the property will be identified as within a City Boundary 
  • e.g.

 8.  For Flood Zone information, click on LAYERS, open the Geologic Hazard/Natural Hazard folder, and select/check "Flood Zone - FEMA".  Click on the "identify" icon then on your property in the map to display the information.

Note: property OWNER NAME is not included (only owner's address included as "Mail Address"); call the Assessor's office - (925) 313-7400 - for this - they will give up to 5 owner names for free. If the APN is not known, they will transfer the call to Drafting/Mapping at 925.313.7435

 

Why no Owner Name online?

California Government Code 6254.21 states that "No state or local agency shall post the home address or telephone number of any elected or appointed official on the Internet without first obtaining the written permission of that individual." As the cost to collect and continuously update this information is prohibitive, the CCMap web site does not display the Assessee name information.

See also, ParcelQuest, a new simple search tool that allows you to view parcel maps, assessed values, and details about houses in a simple and easy-to-use way.
