Library Use

Beginning Monday, September 28 the Murrysville Community Library will be open for patrons to come in without an appointment. However, we are observing a building capacity limit and ask that patrons to keep your library usage to an hour or less to ensure that everyone may enjoy the Library. All individuals entering the Library and throughout their entire visit must wear a face covering that covers the individual’s mouth and nose unless they have a medical condition that impedes their ability to wear a face covering. Children two years of age and under are not required to wear a face covering. For those that cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition, we will offer the following accommodations: use of a Library provided face shield or a curbside appointment.
