GCPL Expands Open+ Library Hours at the Lawrenceville Branch

Gwinnett County Public Library will offer Open+ evening hours at the Lawrenceville Branch beginning October 30. Open+ will expand to 10 pm seven days a week after closing, giving customers increased self-service access to library resources beyond the morning hours currently offered.

Morning hours are Monday through Friday from 8 to 10 am, Saturday from 8 to 10 am, and Sunday from 8 am to noon.

Evening hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 to 10 pm, and Friday through Sunday from 5 to 10 pm.

The 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. GCPL became the first library system in North America to offer the service when it launched in June 2016.

Customers who are 18 years of age or older and hold a library card in good standing may register for Open+ at any GCPL location. 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.
