Libraries Now Open for Curbside Services

The Fulton County Library System is now open for curbside pickup services and will allow patrons with library books and materials at home to begin returning those materials to their local library branches. County libraries will remain closed for typical in-branch library services, but items placed on hold by library patrons will be available for pickup.  NEW beginning Monday, August 17, the library will add 6 new branches to the curbside  from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday at designated library branches.

NEW HOURS BEGINNING Monday, August 17!  We've added 6 new locations and expanded curbside hours.

Curbside hours will be Monday/Tuesday 10 am - 7 pm and Wednesday-Saturday 10 am - 4 pm.

 To pick-up library materials on hold, residents are asked to:

  • Bring their library or photo ID to the branch where their items are being held
  • Follow signs to designated parking spaces for curbside service (or to designated tables for walk-up services)
  • Call the number on signs to alert a staff member that they have arrived and provide their name
  • Show the staff member photo ID or library card through closed window
  • Open/unlock trunk or back seat door to allow library staff to place items in their vehicle
  • Walk-up patrons will use social distancing to provide ID and receive materials in front of branches

To return library materials, residents are asked to:

  • Bring their books or other materials to any library branch open for curbside services 
  • Place items in the book drop located at every branch.
  •  All items returned to the library will be placed in quarantine and will not be checked out to any library patron for a minimum of 24 hours

All items picked up will be checked out for a period of 14 days for new books/materials, 7 days for DVDs and 28 days for all other materials. A very limited selection of passes will be available for checkout during curbside service. Residents are asked not to donate books at this time.

In addition to curbside services, the Library System’s Ask a Librarian live assistance site is available during the same time as curbside hours, Monday/Tuesday: 10 am - 7 pm, Wednesday - Saturday 10 am - 4 p.m.

Virtual Programming will continue on the Library’s social media channels by following @fulcolibrary on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
