Internet Service Changes Ahead: please pardon our dust as we make changes to better serve our patrons!

During the first two weeks of September, our libraries will be improving Internet access, one location at a time. We expect some downtime at each location, so please call your location before planning a trip to use the Internet. There will also be no printing and possibly no WiFi during this time.

Part of this project will also effect two of our library websites, http://newbern.cpclib.org and http://carteret.cpclib.org. Those websites may experience an extended period of downtime, starting as early as Friday, August 30.

Thank you for your patience during this project! As always, our library catalog, ebook service and online resources remain available at home and on your mobile device.
