The Alamance County Public Libraries (ACPL) is proud to be able to offer 24/7 Pick-Up to the Alamance County Community. These 24/7 lockers, funded by a grant from the State Library of North Carolina, are a convenient, contact-free way to get materials outside of regular business hours.

“We are hoping this service makes it easier for those people who do shift work, or who are commuting and may want to just grab their materials and go,” Wendy Kimbro, Graham Library branch manager, said. “As we are in such a convenient location for people coming off the highway, we wanted to give people a quick and easy option for getting materials whenever it is most convenient for them.”

To use this service, library patrons should select 24/7 Pick-up – Graham as their pick-up location when placing library materials on hold. When they receive notification that their items are ready, they can get them at any time from the locker units outside the front entrance of the Graham Public Library. Use the kiosk interface to scan your library card, or type in your library card number, and the locker will open containing your requested items. Removing the items completes the check-out process. Please remember to close the locker door when you’re done and you are good to go.

Visit the library in person Monday through Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The libraries are closed on Sundays.

Library cards are available free of charge for anyone who lives or works in Alamance County. 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.
