In-Person Programs, Outreach and Meeting Room Use Suspended Through August 31st

Pittsburgh, PA  –   – 

Community response to the Library’s remote services and virtual programs has been overwhelmingly positive. Although we do not have a target date for reopening our buildings to the community, we are working to slowly and safely increase in-person services. Opening up our system’s physical spaces will be slow, deliberate and will occur in stages in accordance with the Commonwealth’s guidelines in order to limit exposure and spread of the virus.

We are extending the suspension of all Library in-person programming, outreach and meeting room reservations through August 31, 2020. If we must extend the cancellations beyond that date, we will provide notice as soon as we are able.

When we reopen to the public our attention will be focused on expanding virtual offerings while providing essential, safe in-person library services as advised by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
