LOCAL NEWS — Over 8,000 patrons and over 15,000 items circulated. Those are just some of the annual number reported by the Moore County Public Library in their 2019-2020 annual report. Their shelves also boast over 12,000 items and 2,304 local folks registered for library cards.

According to Director Peggy Gold, the Moore County Library is open for business but with a few changes to try and control the number of patrons inside the library at one time to keep folks safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Library staff ask that all patrons enter through the front doors located just off Majors Boulevard. Masks are not required at this time but masks and hand sanitizer will be available when you enter.

“We will continue to host our October scheduled programs but sign-ups are required, again, to control the number of people within the library,” explained Director Gold.

This includes the Brown Bag Book Club, Little Bookworms, and Story Explorers.

Curbside service are also available and free, public WiFi is always available 24/7 in the rear library parking lot. Copies and faxing are also currently available. The Library’s current hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“The last hour of the day is spent cleaning and sanitizing the library in order to keep our patrons and community safe,” says Director Gold.

If you have questions, or would like to sign up for any of the Library’s programming, call 931-759-7285. You can also get daily updates on their Facebook page. Click here for that link. •
