Muncy Public Library reopens May 26

By Staff | May 20, 2020

Muncy Public Library is happy to announce the re-opening of the library on Tuesday, May 26, said Corey Breneisen, Director of the library.

“This re-opening will happen slowly and in stages, following the guidance from the Office of Libraries,” Breneisen said.

Stage 1 of re-opening will allow patrons to pick up holds on materials (books, audiobooks and DVDs) from the library collection during the following hours:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 12-1 p.m. for vulnerable populations; 1-5 p.m. for the general public. On Wednesday, Friday, Saturday: 9-10 a.m. for vulnerable populations; 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for the general public.

Patrons will come to the back door of the library to collect materials they have requested ahead of time, Breneisen said.

“Holds can be placed online through our website: www.muncylibrary.com; by emailing muncy@jvbrown.edu, or by phone: 570-546-5014 starting on May 26.”

Patrons are limited to 10 items for adults and 20 items for children. “We will be unable to fulfill hold requests in person. Once requested items are ready, the library staff will call or email patrons to come pick them up,” she said. Patrons picking up holds as well as library staff are required to wear masks and follow CDC guidelines for social distancing.

Returned materials must be placed in the book drop next to the back entrance. And for those who have overdue library books, all due dates on materials checked out prior to closure have been extended to June 8.

To protect the health and safety of the community, patrons will not be permitted to enter the library during this time. Book donations are not accepted at this time.
