The Gwinnett County Public Library opened its doors to visitors June 22 as part of its phased reopening plan.

The library’s branches were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and offered  curbside pickup for the past three weeks. Now, all locations are open with new precautions to allow people to access books, computers and other library resources safely.


The library will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, also continuing to offer curbside pickup during those hours. Social distancing measures have been taken, including taping off some furniture and computers to ensure people stay six feet apart, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Open Access, which allows cardholders to enter libraries outside normal hours, will not be available at the two branches that offer it, Lawrenceville and Suwanee. Staff will wear masks and gloves, and mask wearing is strongly encouraged, but not required, for visitors.

The Gwinnett County Public Library has branches in Buford, Snellville, Lawrenceville, Dacula, Duluth, Grayson, Lilburn, Norcross, Peahchree Corners and Suwanee. For more information about its current reopening status, visit the library's website.
