Our Library Mission:
To empower students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and effective navigators of information and technology. This is supported by:
The library is open Monday - Friday during school hours. Students are welcome to come check out books, use our computers, or create and collaborate when the library is open. Students can come to the library any time during the day with a signed pass from a staff member.
Students may check out up to 10 items at a time. Check out is for 3 weeks, but students may renew items unless there is a hold. Students can also request a hold for a book with the library staff. Although there are no overdue fees, students will be restricted to check out more materials if they have overdue items. Students are asked to see their librarian about lost / damaged books. Refunds are not honored after the school year is over, or if the book has already been replaced.

Summer Blast at the Chapel Hill Public Library
The Summer Blast runs from June 1 – August 10. The community is invited to celebrate the season at the fourth annual Summer Kickoff Party at 100 Library Drive on Friday, June 9th from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m.
The Summer Blast is for all ages! We challenge you to read 20 hours this summer! This is the familiar and fundamental program that the community has relied on for decades to ensure that even when schools close for the season, young minds continue to grow. Participants of all ages can claim prizes for every ten hours of reading, and for completing the challenge. The Library is also challenging adults to be Reading Role Models, by reading with kids, talking to kids about what they are reading, and just reading for fun.
The Kick-Off Party on Friday, June 9 begins at 2:00 p.m. on the Library grounds with special demonstrations and activities, food trucks, interactive booths and games.
Families are encouraged to carpool, bike, or walk to the event. Chapel Hill Transit will run a shuttle from Phillips Middle School, and overflow parking will be in the FastMed parking on Estes Drive.
