Message from the Director

message from the directorUPDATED March 20, 2021

Dear Library User,
It is hard to believe that one year ago, we were forced to close our buildings due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We can never express our sincere thanks to our patrons for their understanding and support as we made every attempt to keep our staff, patrons, and community safe from the spread of this deadly virus.
We are so pleased to see the light and the end of the tunnel! While the Vision of the library, “Engaging Communities, Exceeding Expectations” was our North Star for service throughout this year, we will be glad to have our doors open and our hours restored once again. Please read the full Message from the Director here.

Happy National Library Week, April 4-10, 2021

national library weekNational Library Week is a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, library workers and volunteers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. This year's theme is “Welcome to your library!" Libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building, and everyone is welcome to use our services.

Whether you visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery and exploration. The library needs the support of volunteers to fully serve the community. From helping the Friends of the Library to serving on your county's Board of Trustees, there are many opportunities for you to support your library's mission. This week, we encourage you to explore volunteer options at the library. Contact your local Athens Regional Library System branch to learn more.
