What if I return an item late?
You are responsible for returning your materials on time and taking care of any overdue fines you may have. If you owe for late materials, checking out privileges and computer use may be denied until all fines are paid. You can pay your late fees in person with cash or check, or pay them online with a card or Paypal account.

There is a one week grace period for books and there is no grace period for movies. If a book is late it is 15 cents a day per book per a day up to a $5.00 maximum. If a movie is late the fine is $1.00 per movie per day, with a $5.00 per item maximum.

How Do I Get A Library Card?
All residents of Gibsonville and the surrounding areas are eligible for a free library card. You will need to bring a photo I.D. and proof of your current address if the information on your ID is not up to date. A piece of mail or an official document like a utility bill, vehicle registration or a lease agreement can be used to prove your current address.

You can register for your library card online before you visit, or print out a library card application to complete and bring with you on your first visit.  

Children may receive their own card with a parent or legal guardian who will be financially responsible for any fines for lost or damaged materials checked out in the child’s name. You will need to bring your library card with you when checking out library materials.

Strategic Plan
The Gibsonville Public Library conducted a community needs assessment in the summer and fall of 2016 in order to gather feedback from our service population. We used this information to craft a plan of action for our library, taking into account what the community appreciates about current services, what we could be doing better, and what we need to focus on in the future.
The board of alderman approved the library’s strategic plan in October 2017.
The plan is available to view online here.
