In response to the community’s enthusiasm for increased library services, the Forsyth County Public Library system is increasing its hours of operation. Beginning Monday, Sept. 14, all 10 libraries will be open Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All libraries will remain closed on Sundays.

The To-Go Library will operate on a slightly different schedule: Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,  and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

“We appreciate the support our customers have shown our Libraries,” said Director Brian Hart. “We’re glad to know that we’re an essential part of your lives and a source of comfort during such trying times. We’ll continue to look for ways to be helpful and to earn your support.” 

The Library asks that customers follow Gov. Roy Cooper’s new directive on face masks which requires masks for children ages 5 and up as well as all adults. Current building capacity limits of 10-30% will remain for the time being. 

Each of the nine branches will be closed for roughly an hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays for deep cleaning. Customers are advised to call ahead to verify hours of operation on those days. Central Library receives ongoing cleanings and will have deep cleanings as schedules or other factors permit. 

Hart said that the library will be surveying its customers continuously over the next six months in-person, online and through social media to determine the hours and types of services that are most popular with customers.
