If you have or need a book or laptop

If you have library books or laptops that will be due while we are closed, don't panic! All overdue fines for items due while we are closed will be waived. Please do not attempt to return the books or laptops while we are closed. We don't want them back right now.Stay home and stay safe. 

Unfortunately, at this time, we do not have access to the library facility so we cannot lend books or laptops.  We can, however, help you access resources on your phone or tablet if you do not have a laptop. Just send us a text at 404-800-1811 or call us at (404) 297-9522, ext. 1850. We will respond as soon as we can during our normal business hours of 8:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Friday. All texts sent outside of business hours will receive a reply during business hours. 

If you need a book from our print collection, please contact us so we can help find a suitable online substitute.
