Clayton Leaving Affiliated Library System

The Town of Clayton has announced that its library, the Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, will be leaving the Johnston County affiliated library system effective June 1, 2015. To make this transition as smooth as possible for all patrons, the libraries have mutually agreed to discontinue the transfer of books and other materials between Clayton and the Johnston County affiliated library branches on April 1, 2015.

If you currently have an active library card issued by any of Johnston County’s public libraries (including Clayton) beginning with the numbers 2895, rest assured that it will continue to work in any of the remaining Johnston County affiliated library locations including Benson, Four Oaks, Kenly, Princeton, Selma, and Smithfield. You will also continue to be able to access our online resources including eBooks through our 3M Cloud Library and NC Live. Simply stated, we will continue to serve all Johnston County residents regardless of their address.

Please note that if you have a Johnston County Library System card with Clayton set as your home branch, you will be reassigned to one of the other remaining libraries based on the zip code we have on file for you. Should you wish to choose a specific library, please just let us know, and we will honor your request.

For more details about this transition, read the Frequently Asked Questions, or visit your local library.
