COVID-19 UPDATE: Effective 5/1/21

The safety of staff and customers is of the utmost importance.

There is a lot of information regarding these services, so we’ve pulled it all together. Our goal is to make visiting the library as seamless as possible. In order to do so, we ask that patrons read and understand what we’ll be doing to make that happen.

Due to different circumstances each Westmoreland library, has their own limited services. We ask for your flexibility and patience as we all work together in the county network.

ITEM REQUESTS

Bin deliveries are currently four days a week and progress as WCFLS sees fit. Item requests from other libraries may take longer than normal.

Items can be returned at the desk, including Interlibrary loan items. All items are then quarantined for 24 hours.
