Lumberton Public Library

Welcome to the Lumberton Public Library!

Library Update – August 17, 2020

PROTOCOLS – Beginning Monday, June 1st.

  •  Limited hours: Hours will be limited to allow daily cleaning of the library and material. Open Monday thru Friday (Temporarily closed on Saturday)

           10 A.M. UNTIL 4 P.M.

  • Limited items checked out – Patrons will be allowed 5 items per card. Each item must be isolated and disinfected when returned. Therefore, limiting items is necessary to prevent a bottleneck of isolated items. Only books will be checked out due to material sanitation protocol. Sorry, no movies are available to check out at this time.
  • 25 % capacity – The library’s max capacity is 65, and has 6 employees. Therefore, a maximum of 10 people will be allowed in the library at one time.
  • Sanitizing upon entering – All patrons MUST sanitize their hands upon entering. You may either use hand sanitizer available at the door or wash your hands in the restrooms.
  • 6 feet apart – All patrons must maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet apart at all times while inside the library, with the exception of members of the same family. Visible pre-measured lines are placed on the floor to help ensure patron safety in distancing.
  • Limited services – Per Executive Order GA-18, “any components of libraries that have interactive functions…must remain closed.” Therefore, the online card catalog, patron computers and the patron copier will remain closed.
  • Community Room – closed
  • Passport services – temporarily suspended under the recommendation of the U.S. Department of State

Online Reservation – We encourage patrons to take advantage of online reservations. Once your items have been pulled from the shelves by our staff, we will call to let you know they are ready for pick up. Items must be picked up inside the library at the circulation desk and patrons must present their library card before items are released.
