Libraries will be open for browsing, checking out materials, and computer use during these hours. The meeting rooms will be available for public use. We will begin phasing in programs over the following weeks.

In accordance with Governor Roy Cooper’s Executive Order 215, social distancing requirements, capacity limits, and mask mandates in most settings were lifted in Buncombe County on May 14. Unvaccinated individuals are recommended to continue to wear face coverings.

Please note that Buncombe County will be closed for the Juneteenth holiday, so the libraries will be closed on Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19.

If you have questions about any library service, please contact your local library or email us for more information.
