CARTERET COUNTY, NC – The Carteret County Public Library System is pleased to announce that in-person programs have returned at all five library branches. While some events may still contain a virtual component, there are many programs which will return to full in-person service.
“While we are thankful that technology allows us to stay connected virtually, we’re excited to welcome the public to participate in our in-person programming and to connect with the community in person,” said Director of Carteret County Public Libraries Jeanne Holmgren.
CCPL is now offering many ways for patrons to gather. Upcoming in-person library events include activities for kids and teens, book group discussions and special presentations. Check your local branch’s calendar for upcoming events, and sign up in advance for programs that require registration to attend.
