The Franklin County Library is now providing curbside item pickup in Louisburg and Youngsville Branches. Curbside in Bunn and Franklinton begins Monday August 17th, 2020.
- You will need to call at least one business day prior to pickup and schedule a pickup time.
- Pickups will be held 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 5:45pm.
- You may either request for staff to pick some items for you or go to your account and place an online hold.
- Pickups will be contactless, though we will need to verify the last four of either your License or Barcode number. Please let us know which you will be using when you call.
- When you arrive a staff member will roll out your items on a cart in bag which you may take.
Unfortunately the soft opening of Louisburg and Youngsville has been cancelled out of an abundance of caution and concern for citizens and staff member health. We don't currently have an updated date for opening.
We will be increasing the amount we spend on digital content to make more items available. If you want an item that you don't see or something that has a long wait in Overdrive please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "digital request" and we'll purchase as much as we can. If you need help with Digital Content please call the Main Branch at 919-496-2111 between 10am and 530pm.
Summer Reading may consist of families picking up prepared craft kits and doing a reading log in addition to an on-line read-along.
To access digital content use the link on the left of this screen and then you will need your barcode and PIN. The PIN defaults to last four of your phone number on file.
