Hours are Back

As more and more activities become possible again after a year of oddities, don’t forget about all of the amazing things you can do at the library!  Starting on Tuesday, July 6th, 2021, the Alamance County Public Libraries will be operating at our pre-COVID capacities.  We’re open all of our hours again, more seating is available, public computers and printing is back, and more. 

“This is an exciting time for the libraries,” said Susana Goldman, Director. “We have been providing services throughout the pandemic, first virtually, then through curbside and grab and go services. Now that we are able to return to our pre-pandemic hours, the community will have greater opportunity to visit us in person again.”

“The libraries will track usage going forward through new technology that we were able to implement during our reduced hours,” said Deana Cunningham, Associate Director of Operations. “We are thrilled to welcome patrons back to the library, and we also realize that there are many opportunities for the library to bring services to the community. By tracking things like daily and hourly door counts, we can make sure we are using our staff and resources to best serve all of Alamance County.”

You may see some other changes in our spaces as we did implement plenty of safety precautions that will linger. We took the time our during reduced hours to evaluate our spaces and change some things around.  Our meeting rooms are available again in some of our branches, small study rooms are available, and comfortable seating is scattered around the branches again.  Summer Reading is also in full swing with reading, programs, prizes, and more available both in-person and online. 

Please call your library locations for more details and come see some of the changes!
