Library Card Expiration Dates Extended
Cobb County Public Library card accounts for more than 50,000 people previously set to expire on or near July 31 have been extended to Sept. 30. Library officials are asking patrons who received automated library card renewal notices with the July 31 expiration deadline to ignore them because their cards will now expire until Sept. 30. This two-month extension provides library patrons continued access to print and virtual collections without having to renew cards in person.
The seven libraries that have reopened are East Cobb, Mountain View, North Cobb, Sewell Mill, South Cobb, Vinings and West Cobb. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Mondays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays. These libraries are operating under health protocols of Cobb County with library workers wearing face masks and following other safety measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 spread. The public is encouraged to wear masks while visiting libraries and plan on short visits due to the protocols.
