warning Libraries Closed to Public through March 31st

Fontana Regional Library will be closed to the public for coronavirus prevention starting Tuesday March 17th through April 30th.

In evaluating information that indicates that aggressive early social distancing can stop the coronavirus from exponentially spreading, library leadership is making this difficult decision. Currently we plan to reopen on April 16, but will be continually assessing the situation to determine if this date will be extended.
This decision is consistent with Governor Cooper’s call for all public schools to close. The scientific data show that early, aggressive social distancing is vital in slowing the virus’s spread. By not delaying the decision to close, the benefits of social distancing will be maximized.

Overdue fines for materials due during this time will be waived. 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. 

AARP Tax-Aide has suspended operations of all tax assistance sites effective March 16. Sites will suspend operations until further notice.
