(Dare County)

After being open for about three weeks, the Dare County libraries are now announcing expanded in-library hours. In-library services are available now Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Manteo and Kill Devil Hills locations. The Hatteras Village library location will offer limited indoor services Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For customers that prefer their library location’s convenient and popular curbside services, such services will continue to be available for customers who are not yet comfortable entering the library—as well as for the elderly and parents who have small children.

Curbside services will be available by appointment Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Manteo and Kill Devil Hills locations. The Hatteras Village library location will offer curbside services by appointment Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The public is welcomed back inside the Dare County library locations with several limits and reminders:

  • Per the North Carolina Governor’s Executive Order, face masks that cover the nose and mouth will be required to be worn by patrons.
  • Library staff members will remind patrons to continue to practice social distancing.
  • All users are requested to limit their library visits to 30 minutes or less.
  • Computer users will be limited to one single computer session per day.
  • There will be very limited seating available.
  • For library locations with meeting rooms, there will still be no meeting room use at this time.
  • There will be no in-person library programs at this time, but virtual programs for adults will continue, and weekly preschool activity kits for children will continue to be available to take home. New themed kits will be available beginning every Wednesday.

The Dare County Library locations’ curbside services, which have been extremely popular during the COVID-19 pandemic, will continue to be available by appointment between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. on the days the library facility is open for indoor services.
