Library items are never due on a holiday; there are no overdue fees charged for days OCPL is closed.


Our Technical Services staff are the “behind the scenes” heroes of OCPL. Meet our fearless tech services team: Deborah, Ofie, Eric, and Shirley!

They undertake a wide variety of activities to keep all four branches of the Onslow County Public Library running. Working hard to ensure the public has the resources which they have come the expect from OCPL.

The tech service team receives, labels, and catalogs all library materials. Each and every item that comes into the library must be barcoded and processed into our library system before patrons can access them. This is an on-going task and over the last year Tech Services cataloged almost 4,000 different titles and processed over 10,200 items for the OCPL system.

Tech Services also maintains and repairs books, computers, and the print & copy kiosks. They install and update all technology throughout the library system. Additionally, the Tech Services staff is often called to help at the front desk when one of the branches or main library Youth and Public Service departments are short-handed or a patron has a specific technological issue.
