Announcements for unscheduled and upcoming scheduled holiday closings are listed below by location.
Update: Sat, May 30, 2020
Beginning June 1, 2020, members of the public can make an appointment to visit any Fontana Regional Library location in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties starting June 8. Curbside service to pickup reserved items will remain in place for those who prefer that option. All people entering library buildings will be required to wear a mask or other face covering. Safety of the public and library workers is the most important consideration, so social distancing and sanitizing procedures will be observed. For more information or to make an appointment, please call your local library.
Update: Fri, May 15, 2020
Curbside service will resume the week of May 18th. Buildings are still closed to the public and library programs are canceled until further notice. Please contact your local library for more information, including how to reserve / order items for pickup, how to receieve your items, and for local operating hours during this time.
During this time, returned items will remain checked out to you for up to 3 days after you've returned them while they are "quarantined" as a safety measure. No overdue fines should accumulate on your account during the 3-day material quarantine period. Additionally, eBooks and eAudiobooks remain available, and streaming video via Kanopy and NCLive is also available. Wi-Fi also extends around the perimeter of library buildings and can generally be picked up from sections of the parking lots.
