Welcome to the Lumberton Public Library!

Lumberton Public Library will be closed until further notice, and all fines will be waived until further notice. Therefore, there is no need to return items to the book drop if they are due. Staff will be available by phone Monday thru Friday to help answer any questions, or to assist patrons with our e-Book program, which is available through OverDrive and Libby Apps. All meetings and programs are cancelled, but our free Wi-Fi will remain available to everyone from the safety of the parking lot in their vehicles via personal devices. All Passport activities are also suspended until further notice.
