[ARCHIVED] New website and catalog for Contra Costa County Library


The Contra Costa County Library has a brand new website and catalog. The platform offers an updated look and feel and is mobile responsive allowing for an improved user experience whether on a computer, tablet or phone.

Some of the new features include:

  • modern design
  • simple navigation
  • new events layout
  • improved search capabilities
  • ability to create reading lists, rate books and find reading recommendations from others

A redesign of the website and catalog upgrade is overdue and comes in response to requests from patrons and the need to modernize the platform. The previous version of the website was created more than 20 years ago.

“Our new website is more intuitive and patrons can find library materials and resources more easily,” said County Librarian Melinda Cervantes. “The modern look and feel of the platform is going to encourage library users to explore and learn about everything the library has to offer.”

One of the goals in the Library’s 2019 Strategic Plan calls for the library to champion personal and community engagement in literacy and reading and to enrich lives. Launching a new website is a key strategy to help meet that goal.

For questions about the new website and catalog, please call (800) 984-4636 or email [email protected].
