“NEW NORMAL” SCHEDULE
All community bookmobile stops are restored!
Download the new schedule and hours, including hours for the County Library on Sawmill Road and the N4Cs Library in Benton.
The schedule is mostly the same as it was before the pandemic started, with a couple of changes:
1) Our Benton route that includes N4Cs, Central Park Hotel, and Country Fresh Market will stay on Mondays. (On the opposite Monday, we will be doing summer reading stops at the library or serving K-12 schools depending on the season. We will also do home deliveries on some of those Mondays.)
2) Our southern routes that include the Catawissa and Locust Township areas will be on Tuesdays. Note that we will be back at Rohrbach’s Farm Market. (Thanks to Catawissa Christian Church for hosting us throughout the winter season.)
There are a couple of other minor adjustments, so please look the schedule over carefully to find all the stops in your area. You can also use the bookmobile at the County Library during the scheduled times — just stop in to the library to request access to the bookmobile for browsing.
EXPANDED LIBRARY HOURS
We are happy to be able to expand our library hours as we take a few more steps toward our new normal. Starting March 1, the County Library on Sawmill Road will be open the following hours:
Monday – Tuesday: 9am–6pm
Wednesday – Thursday: 9am–4pm
Please take note that we are now open into the evening on Monday and Tuesday (instead of Wednesday). We are now open Wednesday mornings and Thursday afternoons. We will be closed on Fridays until we get more funding. Saturday hours have moved from 9-12 to 10-1.
