BENEFITS OF A LIBRARY CARD
You can use the Online Catalog
(ValleyCat) to search all the titles and authors available to adults and young people throughout
the San Joaquin Valley Library System (SJVLS). If you don't have a computer at home, come into the
library and browse using our ValleyCat computers.
If the book or material you want is in the system, you can request it be sent to
the Los Banos Library for check out! Whether your interest is fiction or nonfiction, our books and
materials have you covered. Add to that the more than three million (and increasing) items in the
San Joaquin Valley Library
System, and you have an unending source of new information available each day.
