To ensure the health and safety of our staff and visitors, we are open for curbside services only until further notice.
Library services still available during this time:
No-contact Curbside Service at all 7 locations
(Starting January 11 ) 10am-5pm, Monday – Friday at our locations in Athens and The Plains
10am-3pm, Monday – Friday at all other library locations
How does it work? You can still browse the library shelves via our online catalog! Call the libraries during curbside hours 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. (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.
*Note: If the current curbside hours do not work for you and your family, call or email your local library during the hours listed above to arrange an alternative plan.
Curbside computer use
Call the libraries during curbside hours to arrange use of a laptop computer in your vehicle! Library staff will hold your photo ID while you use the computer for up to three hours. Call the library when you are finished!
Please note that library staff members will not be able to provide in-depth assistance with the laptop computers. If you need additional help using the computer please arrange a remote Tech Help appointment.
