Join the Alamance County Public Libraries as we celebrate the kick-off of our new Mobile Library service! Our new vehicle, with more than 1500 items on board, will visit more than 40 sites across Alamance County in a three-week rotation, including schools, retirement communities, parks, community centers, and rural and urban neighborhoods.

Our kick-off celebration will take place at Fairchild Community Center, 827 S. Graham Hopedale Rd., in Burlington from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, October 1, 2021. We’ll start with thanking our sponsors and a ribbon cutting, followed by family-friendly fun and games, an outdoor Storytime, and, of course, time to explore and check out the Mobile Library.

The Mobile Library will provide full library services, including signing up for a library card, checking out materials, placing and picking up holds, using computers, and even attending programs at select stops. The Mobile Library is handicapped accessible, with a lift in the back of the vehicle for wheelchairs. Spanish language materials for children and adults are available as well.

Library cards are available free of charge for anyone who lives or works in Alamance County. Children who attend an ABSS school or many of the partnering private and charter schools in the county already have a library card through the ACPL Connect program. They can use their lunch number (or other number, as assigned by their school) to check out up to 10 items.

ACPL borrowing privileges are also available to residents in the surrounding counties of Guilford, Rockingham, Caswell, Orange, Chatham, and Randolph. All patrons are encouraged to speak with a staff member with any questions about their accounts. Happy reading to all.
