Welcome to Wayne’s Cary Memorial Library


As we move into LATE winter-EARLY spring 2021 we hope to remain open with Covid-19 Safety practices in place. Please plan a quick visit in and out, or call (685-3612) or email ( to arrange a Porch Pick-Up. Any questions–please reach out to the librarian. 

Covid Safety Measures: When you visit the library, plan to wear a mask and sanitize your hands as you enter (we have a sanitizing station in our entrance area.) Do not visit if you have been feeling unwell. All returned items will be quarantined 48-72 hours before circulating again.  In the library please maintain a 6 feet social distance at all times.  Sanitize your hands on your way out to provide another layer of protection. 
Library WiFi is available 24/7 with no password.  If you need a computer for more than 15 min. please speak to the librarian and we may be able to arrange that. Interlibrary Loan services are up and running, although requests may take a bit longer to be fulfilled. 

Weather Closures:  On days when travel is dicey, weather closures will be posted here and also will be sent out on the library’s email news list.  Contact Janet if you want to be added to that list.
