GCPL to Expand Open+ Hours to the Weekend Beginning December 10

Gwinnett County Public Library will expand Open+ hours at the Lawrenceville Branch beginning December 10. The service, which gives customers self-service access to the Library from 8 to 10 am during the week, will expand to Saturdays from 8 to 10 am and Sundays from 8 am to noon.

Open+, a system developed by Norcross-based technology supplier Bibliotheca, is a complete solution that automatically controls and monitors building access, self-service kiosks, public access computers, lighting, alarms, public announcements and patron safety. The service was launched in June.

Customers who are 18 years of age or older and hold a library card in good standing may register for Open+ at any of GCPL’s 15 branches for a $5 fee. Upon arrival, customers will insert their own library card into a reader at the entrance, enter a pin, and gain access to library resources.

For more information about Open+, call the Library Help Line at 770-978-5154 or stop by your local branch.
