For the safety of our patrons and with a continued effort to “flatten the curve," all Athens Regional Library System branches in Athens-Clarke, Franklin, Madison, Oconee and Oglethorpe counties will remain closed until such time that it is deemed safe to reopen to the public. Library staff remain on the job  serving our communities virtually.  Please feel free to contact us at http://athenslibrary.org/homepage/regional-information/contact-us if you have any questions regarding library service during this time. We will update the community as more information becomes available.

Library Parking Lots Utilization Policy

Due to space limitations, liability issues, and safety concerns, no vehicles other than conveyances used by library patrons, staff, contractors, or supporting government agencies, or for library-sponsored functions, will be allowed use of library parking areas. Requests for exceptions must be received in writing a minimum of ten days in advance and may be approved for single use only.

The Athens Regional Library System (ARLS) Patron Responsibilities and Conduct policy (see Patron Responsibilities and Conduct) and all other ARLS policies apply to the parking lots and grounds at each library facility.

This policy was approved by the Athens Regional Library Board on 7/18/2013.
