We are open!

It’s finally here!

May 22nd we will be reopening for foot traffic and browsing! Yippee! So because of safety, we are still requiring a mask and the social distance inside of the building, but you will be able to come inside for in-person browsing. We will continue with the same hours with Grab N Go, Monday 4-7 PM, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday from 11 AM – 3 PM. For safety, we have added air purifiers, touch-free hand sanitizers in traffic areas, and will have increased sanitizing. All library staff are vaccinated and will be masked to serve you. If you are not able to mask up for any reason, you are welcome to continue using Grab N Go services. We ask that visits be limited to a half-hour to promote social distance and everyone’s use of the library.  Seating has been removed from most areas.

We have missed our patrons. While a few things have changed for spacing there is still much to explore at your library. The new book rack is restocked and ready for viewing. Interlibrary Loans will start up again. There are DVDs and audiobooks, great reads and board games. We know it has been a long stretch and while everything inside was available to you through Grab N Go, it is just not the same as a visit to your library. We thank you for finding your way to Grab N Go and continuing to use and support your library, but we are so glad to have you back!

  • If you still wish to continue using our Grab ‘n Go service, orders may be placed for pickup by emailing IFLGrabNGo@indianafreelibrary.org or by calling 724-465-8841.

Staff will be wearing face coverings at all times. Patrons will be expected to comply with the same precautions at all times within the library. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you. If you are unable to wear a mask, we will do our best to accommodate you without entry into the building. We have vulnerable staff and patrons and are committed to maintaining a safe environment for both.
