Public Libraries Are Reopening!

Cumberland County libraries are beginning to reopen to the public; each library under its own plan and timeline. Some libraries are already open, and some will be opening soon. Most libraries are offering contact-free pick-up. Check each library's website or Facebook page for details. 

During the Green Phase of COVID-19 mitigation, library services will be limited in compliance with the guidance set forth by Commonwealth Libraries and based on library facility limitations. Masks or face-coverings are required for staff and library visitors at every facility. If you are feeling unwell or have been exposed to COVID-19, we respectfully ask that you not visit the library.

Returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before check in and may still show on your account as checked out. Fines will be waived for all days these items are in quarantine. We adjusted our policy during this time. If you owe less than $25 in fines, you can use all online resources and place holds. Delivery of materials has resumed among Cumberland County's public libraries. Interlibrary loans have resumed but are limited.

With your library card, you can access free online resources 24/7 including e-books and audiobooksmovies, and databases including magazines, investment information, homework help and more.

If you do not have a library card, you may request a temporary Digital Access Card. It will allow you to get access to online services, including downloadable eBooks & eAudiobooks. Please note that it cannot access Kanopy, our online streaming video platform.

We hope all in our communities stay well. COVID-19 advice and information from Cumberland County government is available at
