Visiting the Library During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Since Lackawanna County Libraries reopened in June 2020 after being closed for three months due to the pandemic, we have made it our mission to provide patrons a safe experience while visiting the library. Here are some of the things we are doing to keep you safe:

  • Cleaning and sanitizing high-touch areas after every use.
  • Enforcing social distancing guidelines.
  • Requiring that face masks that cover the mouth & nose be worn by staff and patrons.
  • Offering sanitizing stations for library patrons.
  • Quarantining library materials for 24 hours after they are returned.
  • Providing Curbside Service Hours so patrons can pick up holds without having to enter the library building.
  • Hosting virtual programs for all ages via Zoom and Facebook.
  • Limiting or reducing computer sessions to ensure access and comply with capacity regulations.

If you can’t get to the library, the Library is here for you 24/7 online. Browse eBooks & eAudiobooks on Libby; binge-watch movies on Kanopy; or learn a new skill with LearningExpress Library. There are endless possibilities!
