The library is even more accessible now! Beginning September 14, the library will be open to patrons Monday through Saturday, no appointment needed. Patrons can once again browse the stacks, use the public computers, and partake of several business services, as well as obtain a library card.
All individuals are required to wear a nose- and mouth-covering mask and practice social distancing. Patrons will be encouraged to limit their time in the building, and computers will only be available for hour-long sessions. Things that are still not available: lounge and study furniture, toys and puzzles, in-person programming, or meeting rooms.
Curbside pickup is still available for high-risk individuals and those unable to wear a mask. Visit our website for full details.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday: 10am to 5pm
Wednesday: noon to 7pm
Saturday: 10am to 2pm

Since 1987, September has been National Library Card Sign-up Month, coinciding with the beginning of the school year. During this month, McKean County’s five local libraries, are reminding parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Throughout the school year, public libraries offer access to the internet, use of public computers, and free Wi-Fi. A local library card will enable the card owner to access physical titles and resources at all five McKean County libraries, as well as enjoy more than 16,000 eBooks and eAudiobooks through the OverDrive platform.
Now that libraries have opened their doors on a limited basis to patrons, the time is perfect to explore what libraries have to offer and obtain a library card. The future may not be clear regarding COVID-19, regulations, and an institution’s ability to remain open. One thing is certain, however. It is far easier to secure a library card now, by simply scheduling an appointment during normal business hours.
