LIBRARY CLOSURE INFORMATION
March 16 - April 30
In furtherance of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Governor Tom Wolf issued a Stay at Home order to continue until April 30.
In addition, the governor extended the closure of all K-12 Pennsylvania schools until further notice.
Consistent with the Governor’s order to close Pennsylvania schools indefinitely, and the Public Library Code which grants the Deputy Secretary for Libraries the power and duty to “coordinate a Statewide system of local libraries” (24 PA.C.S. § 9311(b)(5)), the Office of Commonwealth Libraries directs Pennsylvania public libraries to remain closed until further notice is given.
No fines will accrue during this closure period and we urge people to hold on to any overdue items as there will be sweeping fine amnesty. We will not have a book drop-off box available outside and we will not accept Book Sale donations for the Book Sale which has been postponed (new date to be determined).
