As of Sunday, March 15th, the library is closed to the public and will remain closed until further notice. All programs and events will be cancelled or postponed.

Here is what we know now:

  • You will not receive fines or late fees for any items that might have been late.
  • Although our book drop is currently open, you do not need to return items while we are closed. Overdue fines will be waived.
  • We will continue to hold your items for pickup through the closure so you don’t need to worry about items being sent back early.
  • We will not be accepting book donations until further notice.

The library’s closure is required by the Pennsylvania Office of Commonwealth Libraries in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

For current information regarding details about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), visit the Allegheny County Health Department,  Pennsylvania Department of Health or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control websites.

Although our building may be closed, we are still here to serve you!
