Want to request a book or movie, but the catalog won't let you? It could be a Sonoma Valley item. Currently you can't request any items from Sonoma Valley Library through our online catalog system.
The Sonoma Valley Regional Library has relocated to a temporary facility (Burlingame Hall, 252 W. Spain St. Sonoma, CA 95476) during the remodeling of its building at West Napa Street.
During the remodel, the majority of the Sonoma Valley library collections is in storage and unavailable. These are noted in the online catalog with a status of Storage.
Since the collection in the temporary facility is quite limited, holds cannot be placed on them. This ensures there are adequate materials for the Sonoma community to browse. Patrons who wish to see something owned by the Sonoma Valley branch, which is not in storage, will have to go to Burlingame Hall to get it.
The SuperSearch system will not accept hold requests for any items we own, even if our only copy is a non-requestable Sonoma Valley item. If you're not able to request an item through our catalog system or through SuperSearch, you can still fill out an Interlibrary Loan request at any Sonoma County Library branch.
Once the Sonoma Valley library reopens on West Napa Street, all materials will revert to the normal requestable status. Reopening is scheduled for spring 2012. Thank you for your understanding.
