The Franklin County Library will re-open our bookdrops on May 18th so that patrons may return their items.
We will be doing a soft re-open of the Youngsville and Louisburg Branches on June 1st with summer hours of 10am – 6pm Monday through Friday. Louisburg will be open on Saturdays 10am to 5pm.
We will be limited to 12 patrons in each building at any one time.
Library patrons will be limited to one hour in the building per day.
We are also offering curbside service for the foreseeable future in Youngsville and Louisburg.
If you have a large family you may want to call and have us curate a collection of items for you as you may have to wait depending on the number of people in the building.
Summer Reading may consist of families picking up prepared craft kits and doing a reading log in addition to an on-line read-along.
