Delayed Opening on August 29, 2014
The Oconee County Library will open an hour later than usual on Friday, August 29, to accommodate staff training. The library will open at 11:00 a.m.
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.
