The Avery-Mitchell-Yancey Regional Library System has changed hours of operation.

Hours were changed so staff can sanitize efficiently before/after patron use and to allow staff sufficient time to train and complete inventory tasks & training related to the transition to the NC Cardinal Library Consortium.

Daily hours of operation will be extended to accommodate patrons who wish to arrive at the library earlier or later in the day.

NC Cardinal is a statewide consortium of 41 library systems from 51 counties throughout the state that expands items available to nearly 7 million items statewide.
