For the safety of our patrons and with a continued effort to “flatten the curve," all Athens Regional Library System branches in Athens-Clarke, Franklin, Madison, Oconee and Oglethorpe counties will remain closed until such time that it is deemed safe to reopen to the public. Library staff remain on the job  serving our communities virtually.  Please feel free to contact us at http://athenslibrary.org/homepage/regional-information/contact-us if you have any questions regarding library service during this time. We will update the community as more information becomes available.

How do I purchase a book for the library in a loved one's name?

The Athens Regional Library System Memorial or Honor Program is a practical, gracious, great way to pay lasting tribute to a loved one. You simply request that a book or books be added to the Athens-Clarke County Library or one of the branches in the Athens Regional Library System in memory or honor of the person you designate ($25 purchases one book). The library completes a bookplate and secures it to the front free endpaper of the book bought with your contribution.

To participate, complete and print the "Honor a Loved One" form and mail with your check to:

Athens Regional Library System
2025 Baxter Street
Athens, Georgia 30606
