General Information

  • As per Governor Wolf’s statewide mandate, masks are required at both locations and must cover your nose and mouth at all times while in the library.
  • If you are unable to wear a mask, you will be given a laptop or Chromebook to use outside. Disposable masks will be provided if you do not have a mask with you.
  • Computers are disinfected daily and in-between each appointment.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at both locations.
  • Each patron will use a disposable keyboard cover for the duration of their stay.
  • You do not need your library card to use a computer. We’ll just ask for your first name.
  • Staff at both locations will be available to assist you using remote software in order to maintain a safe social distance.
  • Children are not permitted in the building unless they are accompanied by an adult. Children must stay with the adult at all times during the adult’s computer appointment. We strongly encourage appointment holders to come alone. But if you must bring a child with you, that child must wear a mask (if over age 2) and stay with you at all times. Please bring an activity from home to occupy your child.
  • Only those with a computer appointment will be allowed inside the buildings at this time.
