Yancey County Library Schedule

The library is now open to the public by appointment only. Only ten people will be allowed into the building at one time. All patrons visiting the library branches are required under Executive Order No. 147 to wear a cloth face covering. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided. Library hours will be limited to Monday-Friday 10a.m. to 4p.m. and Saturdays 10a.m. to12pm. This allows us time to properly sanitize our facility for everyone’s safety.

Curbside information: If you prefer to use our Curbside service, this will be available upon request. Once your item is available, you will be notified. When you arrive at the library call us. Your library items will be brought to the porch or your car for you to pick up or you can open your trunk for staff to place material inside, whichever helps you feel more comfortable. Be sure to bring your library card with you or know your library card number. Please do not use the curbside library if you are feeling sick in any way.

Returning material: Materials may be returned in the outside book drop only. Please, do not attempt to hand materials back to staff.

The Friends of the Library and the library are unable to receive any donations of books or other material at this time. Both the Book Cellar in the library basement and the Book Cellar Annex on Town Square are closed until further notice. Call for an update.

IN JANUARY:  Join us on Zoom for our third annual Intention Mapping Workshop with Jennifer Dorfield on Saturday, January 9 from 2-5 p.m. Come create a collage that represents your aspirations for the New Year.
