Guthrie is Now Open for Expanded Browsing!

Starting Monday, August 31st, Guthrie Memorial Library will offer expanded in-library services. Customers will be able to browse children, teen, and adult library collections, use the copier, make in-library payments, and rent DVDs.

Your library experience will be different than it was before the pandemic. We are following the guidelines of the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, the Governor, the PA Health Department, and the CDC to provide a safe and healthy library environment for members and staff. This requires numerous steps allowing time and space to practice proper cleaning and social distancing protocols for safety.

  • Masks are required to be worn inside the library.
  • Occupancy limits will be in effect.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available and encouraged for member use.

Come visit us and refresh your reading supply. Browse the collections, discover some new reads and check out some titles to enjoy at home. Rather than our traditional “sit and read” library setting, it will be a renewed “browse and go” experience. This is all part of our current reopening phase and the extra measures we’re taking to provide you with a safe and healthy library environment.

Limited computer usage will begin on Tuesday, September 8. There will be a limited number of computers available in each department. Customers will need to make a reservation, either in person or by phone. Reservations will be on the hour with a time limit, limit of 2 reservations per day in adult, and 1 per day in teen and children’s. Masks must be worn while using a computer. Each computer used will be cleaned between each use.

*Newspapers, magazines, board books, toys, stem kits, meeting room rentals, study rooms, PA Room, in-library programs/events and seating areas are still not available at this time.
