General information

Chavez branch has approximately 56,000 books, compact disks, videos, DVD's, audio books and magazines and newspapers for all ages. Our Spanish language collection is the largest of the system, with 11,500 circulating Spanish items. Also, of popular interest is our Chicano reference and circulating collection. Chavez also has a small Vietnamese collection with 750 items. Finally, Chavez offers a popular Children's section and a growing teen collection. The Cesar Chavez Seed Lending Library is a free urban seed project committed to increasing the capacity of our community to feed itself wholesome food by means of education that fosters community resilience, self-reliance and a culture of sharing. Anyone is welcome to come in and check-out seeds. No library card is needed, just sign-out for them. We then ask that you let some go to seed after planting them and return some of these next generation seeds for others to borrow. The best part is that there are no fines if you are unable to return the seeds!
