Reopening Information


 

The Library is open to the public.
Beginning on February 1st. 
 
Hours of operation
Monday - Thursday from 10AM - 8PM
Friday & Saturday from 10AM - 5PM
Sunday 1PM - 5PM (Closed on Sunday in the Summer)

Masks are required to enter the Municipal Building and while in the Library.  Children under the age of 2 and those with a valid medical condition are exempt.  High touch areas such as counters and tabletops are disinfected daily.  Hand sanitizer is available throughout the Library for you to use.

Public computers, which have been socially distanced, will be available for use but are limited to one hour per day to accommodate as many people as possible.  Toys and games have been removed from the Family Place area and furniture has been reconfigured to maintain social distancing practices.  Study rooms are limited to two people. 

As we are under a limited capacity order, we are asking all patrons who visit to conduct their transactions and not linger in the Library so that we may accommodate as many people as possible during our operating hours.

You may return library materials in the outside book drops at any time.  All returned materials are quarantined for at least 96 hours before being checked in.  You will still notice them on your account during the quarantine phase.  No fines will be charged during that time.

We will still be offering curbside pickup for those who are not comfortable coming in to the Library. 

You can use this form to request items for curbside pickup. Please limit your requests to a maximum of five (5) itmes.

Bethel Park Public Library is one of a small number of the 70+ library outlets in Allegheny County that is opening to the public at this time.  Please understand that all the services to which you have become accustomed may not yet be available.  Classes and programs will continue to be held virtually unless they can be accommodated in Council Chambers where social distancing can be safely done.  Face coverings are required for the duration of in-person classes and programs.  When it is safe to do so, all classes and programs will return to in-person.  We ask for your patience and support of new rules and regulations that we must follow as we work to provide to you the best library services we can during this time.
