All Augusta library branches closed through Jan. 31
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - All Augusta library branches will be closed to the public, effective immediately, due to COVID-19, and all branches will be offering curbside pickup only when they do reopen.
Until Jan. 31, the library asks the public to not return items to any of the library book drops as no staff will be in the buildings to process the items.
Due dates on all library materials will be extended. No fines will accrue during the closed dates. Pick up deadlines for materials on hold will be extended.
Beginning Feb. 1, all branches will go back to curbside pickup only. Patrons may place holds on materials for pickup online through their PINES account or by calling the library branch of their choice.
Library staff will call you to let you know when your items are available and schedule a curbside pickup time. The public is asked to give 24 to 48 hours to get the materials prepared.
Staff will also be quarantining books for 72 hours after returns.
