All Susquehanna County Historical Society and Free Library Association locations have reopened buildings to the public.
Patrons are able to enter library buildings to browse and check out library materials or to access genealogy services. In addition, patrons have access to in-building services, such as internet, photocopying and fax services. We have reduced the total number of patron computers available to allow for social distancing, and patrons will be limited to 30 minutes of computer use at a time. All returned library materials are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours.
Social distancing measures are being implemented. We will encourage patrons to limit the total time spent inside the building, and patron seating areas will be reduced. Hand sanitizing stations are in place in the buildings. Masks will also be required to enter library buildings. If a patron does not wish to wear a mask for medical reasons, they may continue to request items for curbside pickup.
Please bear with us as we continue to transition during this time. We miss seeing you all, and look forward to seeing you in our buildings again soon!
