Statewide PINES library catalog system will be down for maintenance, August 28-29
The PINES library catalog system -- which manages the catalogs and patron cards of numerous libraries, including those in the Athens Regional Library System -- will be unavailable starting at 6 p.m. Thursday, August 28, and should be back up by 6 p.m. Friday, August 29. It is possible, however, that the system may be down through the weekend.
During this time, library staff will not be able to issue new library cards or renew expired cards, place holds on books, search the PINES catalog or collect fines. Patrons also will not be able to renew books on our website from home.

Calling all artists and crafters! Altered books are a form of mixed media art where you take old books and use found and recycled materials, plus different techniques, to transform them into totally new books that are unique works of art and self expression. Bring your old books, a crafting knife, scissors, and glue to the library, along with any pieces of yarn, embroidery thread, ribbon or other odds and ends you would like to incorporate, and let Ellen Miles show you how to turn it in to a work of art! For adults and teens.
