Visitors to the Lathrop Branch can sign up to use our public computer workstations for Internet and Microsoft office, use a study room, read the newspaper, or hang out in our seating area.


Returning Library Materials

Lathrop Branch Library materials may be returned at any Stockton/San Joaquin County Public Library. Return materials inside the library during open hours, or use the outdoor bookdrop when we're closed.

Note: Link+ materials must be returned inside the library. Please never return Link+ materials in the bookdrop.


Study Rooms

The Lathrop Branch Library offers two small study rooms that anyone can use. They are on a first come first serve basis, each fit two people maximum, and can be used for as long as you need them. Make sure to check in with the desk before using the room.


Donating Materials

We are currently not accepting donations due to an overflow!

You may donate materials to the library during open hours. Please do not put your donations in the outdoor bookdrop.

The Lathrop Branch Library accepts books, DVDs, and CDs in good condition. Donated materials may be added to our collection for circulation, used at branch events, or offered at other libraries for their book sales.
