Changes to Library Service

Updated 6/1//2020

Late last week, Governor Wolf announced that Westmoreland County would move to the green phase of his reopening plan on June 5.  Public libraries in Westmoreland County have developed individual reopening plans with a focus on staff and community safety.  This means that while libraries are permitted to return to serving the public, it might look different depending on the library location.  While some libraries are able to open their buildings to a limited number of patrons, others are providing curbside service while they prepare their spaces for a full reopening.  Please contact your local library for the most up-to-date information about services.

While most of our libraries are now accepting returns, we continue to automatically renew all items and waive all fines during this closure.

We’ve increased our digital services and resources in order to continue to meet the educational and recreational needs of our county.  Browse our collection of over 14,000 ebooks, eaudiobooks, and streaming video, or check out our schedule of virtual programs.

Thank you for your continued support.  We’ll see you soon!


Please keep any library materials until we reopen.  Do not leave any items at libraries, including the book drops.  Items will be renewed automatically until we reopen.

All overdue fines and fees are waived during this closure.

Our eBook, eAudio, and video streaming collection remains available free to you 24/7.  Click here for instructions on how to download eBooks and eAudio.  Click here for instructions on how to stream free movies.
