  • Wireless connection will be extended to be accessed 24/7 from the parking lot or benches at the outside of the library, with your own device.
  • OverDrive Libby app is available 24/7 for e-books and e-audiobooks. This is a great time to figure out how to get started on this service which is free with any library card You can read or listen to books on almost any device. We are happy to help get you started via phone.
  • Non-resident library cards that may have expired or carry existing fines can be renewed online by logging into your account and following the prompts to pay with credit card.

  • The Friends of the Library Pump House Used Book Store is closed until further notice.
  • All library programs are suspended until further notice.

Meanwhile, our website will remain fully functional, to encourage learners of all ages to engage their minds and stay connected:

  • LiLI databases where you can access reliable health updates, car repair manuals, news, practice for the SAT, learn Excel, practice a foreign language, and more.
  • Tumblebooks and Tumblemath, animated and talking stories to engage kids’ minds.
  • Link to McCall Library’s YouTube channel with story times by Children's Librarian Miss Melody New episodes dropping weekly. 
  • Current updates regarding library services.

Libraries are, by design, unable to practice social distancing to the degree recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health authorities. Keeping McCall library open at this time has the potential to harm our community more than help. Thank you for your understanding.
