Published by Forsyth County Public Library / September 24, 2018

We’re making some changes that will allow you to order materials from the N.C. Cardinal system more efficiently. During that time, the library catalog system will be unavailable. The transition will take place between Friday, Oct. 12 through Sunday, Oct. 14. During this time, patrons must have their library cards to check out, and they must be in good standing before Oct. 12. Additionally, the online library catalog will be unavailable between these days.
