Franklin County Library Board of Trustees Meeting 
April 13, 2020, 10:00AM

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.

Message from the Director

Message from the DirectorDear Library User,

On behalf of our Library Boards of Trustees and the library staff members that you have come to care for over the years, I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we move through the process of re-establishing physical library services.

We do want to remind you that many library services have been and will continue to be available to our patrons in a virtual format. As our state moves from “stay at home” to “safer at home” recommendations, we encourage patrons to use our on-line services as often as possible to help our local and state officials in their effort to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Please read the Message from the Director for the full statement.
