LYNCHBURG — The Moore County Public Library (MCPL) announced recently that they’ve updated their hours to accommodate daily cleaning and sanitizing. It’s an effort to keep the library’s doors open as active COVID-19 case counts continue to rise in Moore County.

The MCPL will now close daily at 4 p.m. for cleaning and sanitizing.

“No exceptions will be made for this critical hour of cleaning time, so please plan your visit accordingly,” their social media page stated.

Currently hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9-11 a.m. The library closes every Thursday and Sunday. If you prefer curbside services, call 931-759-7285.

Library officials remind patrons that hours are subject to change quickly and without notice in order to keep everyone safe. Masks are also available in the lobby if walk in patrons need one. •
