From Craven-Pamlico-Carteret Regional Library:

In order to slow the spread of the corona-virus and protect the
Craven-Pamlico-Carteret community, all CPCRL libraries have been closed
to the public. Library events and storytimes have also been canceled.
Library staff will be at work during this closure.
This closure affects all Craven-Pamlico-Carteret Regional Library
services to the public beginning on Tuesday, March 17. The suspension of
public operations will allow CPCRL libraries the opportunity to assess
our facilities to consider possible modifications that could ensure
appropriate social distancing.

Library staff will be available via phone during regular library hours
to assist patrons with renewing materials, offering reading suggestions,
and assisting with digital downloading. If staff are not available at
your local library, please call one of our other locations. Access to
our wireless network will also be available from outside library
buildings where connections permit.

CPCRL online services available for cardholders include its large
collection of digital materials such as eBooks, e-downloadable
audiobooks, videos, test prep, and research databases.

Patrons are encouraged to keep materials at home until the library
reopens. Late fines will be waived for the duration of this service
disruption. You can manage your account online with your library card.
Library staff are also available over the phone for renewing materials.
Our outside book drops will be available for those who wish to return
materials.

For up-to-date information, please visit our website and social media
channels.
More information on health precautions can be found at the NCDHHS
website at ncdhhs.gov/coronavirus.
