ACPL Closing and COVID-19 Updates

The Athens Public Library will open at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday starting October 13
  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED for all library users over the age of 10.
  • No donations are accepted at this time.

Curbside Service

No-contact Curbside Service at all 7 locations (includes books, movies, hotspots, games, printing, and faxing. Not sure if there’s another library item included with curbside? Just ask!)

How does it work? You can still browse the library shelves via our online catalog!

Call the libraries between 10:00am and 3:00pm, Monday through Friday with your requests and to arrange pickup of materials that are listed as being at your local library, or items requested from other libraries that have already arrived for you. (p.s.–Outdoor games in our collection will still be available for pickup at the Athens library.)

Once you’re at your local library, you’ll call again to let staff know you’re there, and we’ll either leave your items outside at a specified location or put them in your car.
