Fulton County Library System to open for curbside pick-up

Beginning Wednesday, July 1, the Fulton County Library System will begin curbside pickup services and allow patrons with library books and materials at home to begin returning those materials to their local library branches, according to a press release.

County libraries will remain closed for typical in-branch library services, but items placed on hold by library patrons will be available for pickup from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

To pick-up library materials on hold, residents are asked to:

  • Bring their library or photo ID to the branch where their items are being held
  • Follow signs to designated parking spaces for curbside service (or to designated tables for walk-up services)
  • Call the number on signs to alert a staff member that they have arrived and provide their name
  • Show the staff member photo ID or library card through closed window
  • Open/unlock trunk or back seat door to allow library staff to place items in their vehicle
  • Walk-up patrons will use social distancing to provide ID and receive materials in front of branches

To return library materials, residents are asked to:

  • Bring their books or other materials to any library branch open for curbside services
  • Place items in book drops located at every branch
  • All items returned to the library will be placed in quarantine and will not be checked out to any library patron for a minimum of 24 hours
  • All items picked up will be checked out for a period of 14 days for new books/materials, 7 days for DVDs and 28 days for all other materials. Residents are asked not to donate books at this time.
