Holiday Hours And Events!

The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System will be closed next Monday and Tuesday, December 24-25 for the Christmas Holiday. All branches will reopen as regularly scheduled on December 26. In the meantime, why not come celebrate the season at your local library branch! We have lots of ways for our patrons to have fun and de-stress during what can sometimes be a chaotic time of year. Why not check out a few holiday-themed books, CDs, or DVDs to enjoy fireside? Or find a fun craft program or seasonal storytime to attend? Already looking towards your New Year's resolutions? Why not let the library help you get healthy in 2013? Or maybe you want to make one of your resolutions to better familiarize yourself with all of the electronic resources your Library System has to offer. Need to test out that new eReader you got from Santa? Don't spend a lot of money purchasing downloads when you can visit our collection of downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks and get started for free!

With so many ways to make the library a part of your holiday traditions, we're sure we have something here for everyone. We look forward to seeing all of our patrons throughout the rest of the year, and we wish everyone a very happy, safe, and joyous holiday season!
