For Immediate Release:

Precautionary Closing Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Glenside Public Library District has closed temporarily. This decision follows discussion with our community partners and consideration of the Stay-at-Home executive order given by the Governor’s Office.
Currently, we plan to reopen on Wednesday, April 8.
Closing the library is a difficult decision that has only been made because of these extraordinary circumstances. The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our first priority. Early actions to increase social distancing are the best way to contain the spread of COVID-19, according to the CDC. We feel that closing the library is the best way to protect the health of our community at this time. While we are closed, we will carry out extra cleaning and disinfecting of the building.
All due dates will be extended to April 13, one week after our expected return to operations. Please don’t return anything while we are closed. Just stay home and enjoy!
You can also continue to use the library without visiting by downloading eBooks; listening to downloadable and streaming audiobooks; streaming movies and TV shows; streaming music; reading digital comics, newspapers, and magazines; taking online classes; and much more. Browse our website for information about checking out online materials and resources.
We look forward to seeing you in person again soon.
