Public library updates
Staff from Youngsville Public Library and all other public libraries in Pennsylvania are anxious to be allowed to reopen more services to patrons (other than the increased e-services currently offered). However, at this time, the library has not received guidance from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries in Harrisburg as to when the library closure order will be lifted. As soon as staff is told what library operations will look like and what safety rules and regulations the library will have to follow, Youngsville Public Library will inform the public via the newspaper and on its website.
In the meantime, there are many e-services that are easily accessible via the website at YoungsvilleLibrary.org. Also, additional e-books and e-audios are being added to the Seneca District Overdrive system for easy access.
Information regarding the library’s extended return policy, easy ways to access free e-resources such as e-books and audio books (even if you don’t currently have a county library card), “one-stop” resources for students and parents to utilize, and more can be found at YoungsvilleLibrary.org (references/general references tab).
YFree Methodist updates
