March 31st Library Closure Update:

Consistent with the Governorís order, Pennsylvania public libraries will remain closed indefinitely. All events are canceled and no late fees will be issued.
We are truly disheartened by these events and miss our face-to-face interactions with our wonderful community members, but we will continue to do our best to provide information, services, and resources virtually as we face this chaotic time together.
Please take heart in knowing that t
his too shall pass, and before you know it, we will be back to hanging out together in this fantastic facility in this wonderful town filled with great people.
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy and hope to see you all soon.

Sincerely,

Rachel L. Campbell, Director
