Message from the Director

UPDATED: September 20, 2020

message from the director
Dear Library User,
I am very pleased to announce that in addition to our current services, most county libraries will be moving to the next phase of the libraries re-opening plan.  Those libraries will be welcoming patrons back into our facilities for Grab and Go service beginning September 28, 2020.  

Due to the recent spike in Coronavirus cases, the Athens-Clarke County libraries will not be participating in Grab and Go service at this time.  We will, however, continue the services that are currently being offered:  Extended curbside hours, computers by appointment, document delivery, reference chat, and passport services.  The active cases and infection rates in Athens-Clarke County will be reviewed weekly with the hope of opening for Grab and Go service in early October.  Please read the full Message from the Director here.

Resources That Promote Equity

current events resourcesThe Athens Regional Library System embraces diversity, inclusion, and social justice. These are a part of our organizational values and at the heart of our public services. We support the members of our communities who are in pain, those who are on a quest to educate themselves around the issues of race, and those wondering how to talk with children and young people about these issues. To help with those endeavors, we have developed the following list of resources. We will be adding to this list as the days go by. Much like the challenging events our communities have experienced over the last three months, the Library believes that we are in this together, and together we will see our way through.
