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 if you have any questions regarding library service during this time. We will update the community as more information becomes available.

How many books can I check out at one time?

A maximum of 50 items can be checked-out on one library card. There is an additional limit on DVDs/Videos of 15 checked out on one library card. The 15 DVDs count as part of the 50 item limit.
