Beginning Monday, December 21, the library will be returning to curbside pickup. However, individuals may still schedule appointments for necessary computer use (e.g. taking tests, job applications, applying for benefits, school work, etc.). Time limits will apply. Curbside services can also include scanning, faxing, and copying (by appointment only). This action is in response to Governor Wolf's additional mitigation orders to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Curbside will remain in effect through the month of January. We will be evaluating this as time goes on with the hope that we can reopen our doors to allow patrons in the building in February. To place a request for curbside pickup, call the library at 814-362-6527 or login to your account using the Library Catalog link at www.bradfordlibrary.org.
Hours For Curbside Pickup
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 10am to 4:30pm
Wednesday: noon to 6:30pm
Saturday: 10am to 1:30pm
