Union County Library reopens for holds pickup service

LEWISBURG — The Union County Library System will reopen to the public with limited pickup service on Monday.

“We’d like to thank our patrons for their patience during this extraordinary time,” said Roberta Greene, Union County Library system administrator. “By taking this initial step, we reaffirm our commitment and continued mission to provide reading, listening and viewing materials to all members of our communities.”

The Public Library for Union County’s following hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday for the general public. There will be an exception for 10 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays for vulnerable people. The library is closed Sundays.

The Public Library for Union County will be closed on June 2 as it is a polling location.

Using a library card, patrons can order materials ahead by calling the library or by using their “My Account” on UnionCountyLibraries.org. Loans within the Union County Library System will be accepted but not with other counties via Inter-Library Loans. After receiving confirmation that an order is ready for pick up, patrons may enter the lobby and a staff member will deliver their order.

All those entering the building are asked to follow current social distancing guidelines as issued by the state. Individuals must wear a mask. Individuals unable to wear masks due to medical reasons can call the library upon arrival and a staff member will deliver their order to their vehicle. All items will be bagged in plastic for safety.

At this time, patrons are limited to 30 items per library card account. Fines will continue to be waived until further notice.

Library customers are encouraged to visit UnionCountyLibraries.org for unlimited 24/7 access to eBooks, audiobooks, comics, movies, TV, research databases and more materials for all ages.

All items must be returned to the book drop. Staff cannot accept returns.
