Beginning Tuesday, July 21, patrons will be able to access the full library collection and public computers through an appointment-only service. Call the library at 814-362-6527 to schedule your appointment.
Appointment days and times:
Tuesday and Thursdays, 10:00am to 4:00pm
In consideration of the building capacity and number of employees on duty, only eight patrons will be allowed into the library at any given time. Appointments will be scheduled every 30 minutes, for a 20-minute time slot. For example, a patron can schedule a 10:00 appointment and must leave the library by 10:20. Library staff will use the 10 minutes before the 10:30 appointment slot to clean and sanitize all high-touch surfaces.
Universal masking and social distancing will be enforced. Patrons who cannot or will not wear a mask will be asked to wait outside and use curbside service. Patrons are encouraged to return all items to the contactless outdoor book drop, open 24/7.
Several library services will remain unavailable, including lounge and study furniture, toys and puzzles in the Early Literacy Center, magazines and newspapers, access to meeting rooms, and in-person programs and meetings.
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 10:00am to 4:00pm
Wednesday: 1:00pm to 7:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am to 2:00pm
Once your request is processed, library staff will call to assign a pickup date and time. Your items will be in a bag on a table at the front of the library, labeled with your first initial and last name.
Interlibrary loan is not available at this time. When requesting an item through the catalog, please make sure it is a Bradford item.
All items returned to the library will be quarantined for 72 hours before being returned to circulation. Due to these procedures, your hold time may be longer than normal. Thank you for your patience!
