A Message From the Director

Dear patrons—

I know many of you are wondering when the Library will open back up. I wish I had a definitive answer for you, but I do not. I can tell you that we are working with DeKalb County Leadership, the Library’s Board of Trustees and the DeKalb County Board of Health to come up with a plan for how and when we will reopen and begin serving you in person again. Our guiding principle through this process will be to provide a safe working environment for library staff and a safe library experience for you. I think the only thing we do know, is that it will look very different than it did when we closed on March 14. We will need your support and patience as we navigate this together.

Although the library is closed, you can apply for a temporary digital library card that allows you to use our online materials.  You can do this if you’ve misplaced or are unable to use your current library card. If you have a card, but forgot your PIN, you can go to the My Account page and click the "Forgot your pin?" link.

How do I register for a card?
