Covid-19 Hours

Posted on June 12, 2020

As you know, we are a County office, run by Carroll County Taxes. As such, we are subject to all policies that other county offices (like the assessor’s office and court house) fall under. Due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19, Judge Sam Barr has once again closed all county offices to the public.

However, we know the library is important to you and you need to continue to use the services we offer. We are still doing curbside service. We will bring items out to you, copy and fax things for you, and all your returned materials can be put in the drop boxes.

Checking Out Materials:

  1. Put items on hold using our card catalog, or call us to let us know the books/movies that you’d like to check out. We will find them for you and get them ready.
  2. Come to the library and call when you arrive.
  3. We will bring the items to you.

Returning Materials:

  1. Simply place materials in one of our drop boxes. (There is one in the front, and one in the back of the library.)
  2. We will gather the materials and place them in quarantine for 5 days. They will still show up on your account during this time.
  3. After 5 days, we will scan each item to check it in and return it to the shelf.
  4. NOTE: DO NOT PLACE HOT SPOTS IN THE DROP BOX! You must call us and physically hand us the hot spot. You will be charged if the hot spot is damaged from being left in the drop box.
