Updated Library Statement Regarding COVID-19

All Forsyth County Public Library locations are now open with expanded hours. Current hours are posted on the library's website at

Visiting the Library in Person

Beginning Thursday, September 3, all library visitors will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their visit, including children ages 5 and older. Patrons who do not have a mask may request a free, disposable mask at the main entrance of each library branch.

Patrons should limit their visit to 30 minutes or less, maintain social distancing while inside the library, and follow any posted directional signs in tight spaces. 

Drinks and food may not be consumed for the duration of your visit to the library.

Book Drops are Open

Patrons who have library books to return may use the outdoor and drive-up book drops at all four Forsyth County Public Library locations.

Books, CDs, books on CD, DVDs, and read-alongs can be returned in the drive-up book return bins at the Cumming and Hampton Park libraries, as well as the automated book returns at the Post Road and Sharon Forks libraries. 

Other items, such as oversized items and books from Interlibrary Loan, may not be returned in the book drops and must be returned inside the library during regular hours.

Contact-Free Curbside Pickup

Contact-Free Curbside Pickup is available at all four Forsyth County Public Library branches. Appointments are required to request items and pick them up. Learn more about Contact-Free Curbside Pickup.

eLibrary Services and Ask a Librarian

The eLibrary remains open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide patrons with access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, and many eResources.  

FCPL Academy provides helpful online tutorials for many of these resources. If you need assistance with any of these resources, or if you have any questions at all, please email us through our Ask a Librarian service

Access Free WiFi in Library Parking Lots

We realize that many library patrons depend on the library for WiFi internet access. WiFi access is available in the parking lots of all our branches from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, including weekends. Any patron using WiFi in the parking lot must remain in their vehicles.
