As pandemic regulations are changing at the state and national level, Fontana Regional Library has also adjusted its policies to reflect that wearing a mask is strongly recommended but not mandatory. We encourage everyone coming into our buildings to wear a mask as a way to protect themselves and others.
Beginning June 1, members of the public can make an appointment to visit any Fontana Regional Library location in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties starting June 8. Appointments are limited to 45 minutes each and can be made by phone up to one week in advance.
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.
- In line with health department recommendations, armchairs, couches, and other upholstered furniture will NOT be available for use.
- Appointments will be available in 45-minute appointment slots, which will allow library staff to serve as many people as possible while also cleaning areas after use.
