It's getting pretty quiet around the library this week as many patrons gather at home with their families to celebrate the holidays. We'll be taking a break from our #ShelfLife feed on Instagram next week, too.
All Forsyth County Public Library branches will close Friday, December 23 at 5:30 p.m. and remain closed on Saturday, December 24 through Monday, December 26.
Just remember that our eLibrary is always open, so you can check out eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, videos, music, and reference materials at www.forsythpl.org any time. Seasons Readings!
