New Library Service Starting Monday, July 6th

On Monday, July 6th, following the guidelines developed by the CDC and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Konkle Library will allow patrons to browse the shelves to choose books, including the Children’s Room, for 30 minutes. This service will be offered by appointment only and will be limited to 3 people at a time. Call the library to schedule a day and time.

The toys in the Children’s Room will be removed and some furniture throughout the library will be rearranged to maintain social distancing.

Hand sanitizer will be provided at “Sanitation Stations” throughout the library for use before and after browsing the books.

The following services which began on June 15th will remain the same:

  • Holds can be picked up at the Circulation Desk. To maintain social distancing, 2 patrons at a time may pick up holds. Holds may be placed online at konklelibrary.org or by calling the library at (570) 368-1840. Patrons will be notified when their holds are ready for pickup.
  • 3 public computers will be available for patron use on a first come, first serve basis. The computers can be reserved for 1 hour by calling the library.
  • Printing, copy and fax services will be available.

The following services will not change:

  • Patrons must wear a mask or other face covering to enter the library.
  • Books and DVDs must be returned in the Book and DVD drops. Books will continue to be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked out or re-shelved.
  • Our hours will remain:

Monday – Friday 10 AM – 5 PM
Saturday 9 AM – 1 PM

We have installed Plexiglass shields at the Circulation Desk and clean and sanitize frequently to ensure your health and safety.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to follow a gradual plan to re-open the Library to ensure the health and safety of the community!

The Konkle Memorial Library has joined forces with the American Library Association to participate in the Libraries Transform campaign. Libraries Transform highlights how libraries are community centers of information, technology and learning that fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens. Libraries contribute to education, employment, entrepreneurship, engagement and empowerment, and are catalysts for powerful individual and community change. Please share your “because” statement about how the library has helped transform your life!
