What is Open Access?


Open Access, 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 Duluth, Grayson, Lawrenceville, Norcross and Suwanee branches.  All library customers 18 years of age and older have access to the branches 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.

Upon arrival, customers will insert their own library card into a reader at the entrance or type in the library card number, 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.

Open Access is not available the night before a library holiday/closure.
