Q. What is Open Access?



Open Access (formerly 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. Security cameras will monitor the use of the facility.

This service is available at the Lawrenceville Branch.  Registered customers will have access to the branch Monday through Saturday from 8 AM to 10 AM, Monday through Thursday from 8 PM to 10 PM, Friday and Saturday from 5 PM to 10 PM and Sunday from 8 AM to 12 PM and then again from 5 PM to 10 PM.

Customers who are 18 years of age or older and hold a library card in good standing may register for Open Access at any of GCPL’s 15 branches. 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 Access, call the library at 770-978-5154 or stop by your local branch.
