You may now pick up materials either at the library’s drive up window or from inside the library!
For Drive-thru window pickup service, please call ahead or use the online library catalog to reserve your items. We will work diligently to pull and bag your materials so they are ready to go when you arrive at the window.
The pickup window is open 10AM – 4PM Monday through Saturday. You must present your valid library card at the drive-thru window for materials pickup.
Return items and fines will NOT be accepted at the drive thru window. Please use the drop box in the rear parking lot. The library will quarantine returned books according to current guidelines before they are released to the stacks.
No books may be brought into the library. Please drop off any returned materials including CDs and DVDs at the book drop in the rear parking lot or front of the building for quarantine.
Our Librarians, Circulation and Technical Services staff continue to work behind-the-scenes to provide you with a larger selection of popular eBooks and e-Audiobooks, virtual programs, Ask Us 24/7, videos, book reviews, and more!
We appreciate our patrons and are happy to serve you!
If you are a registered Pennsylvania voter, you can use the new early in-person voting option available under the bipartisan Act 77.
You can request, receive, mark and cast your mail-in or absentee ballot all in one visit to your county election office or other designated location.
With this option, there is no need for mail at all, and you can cast your vote at your convenience.
You must be a registered voter to submit an application.
To check whether you are already a registered voter in Pennsylvania, use the Find Voter Registration Status tool. You must apply for an absentee or mail-in ballot for each election unless you qualify for and request permanent status to vote by mail-in ballot.
If you plan to vote using an absentee or mail-in ballot, your completed application must be received in the county office by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, October 27, 2020. Postmarks DO NOT count. Once you have received your voting ballot, the deadline for return is 8:00 PM on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
You can request a mail-in or absentee ballot online HERE. Note that you must check the I Am Not A Robot box in order to proceed online with your application for a ballot. Otherwise, you can choose from the links shown to print out a paper application that you will need to mail to your county in order to receive your mail-in ballot.
When you submit your application for a mail-in or absentee ballot, you will be instructed to print your confirmation and/or have a copy of the confirmation emailed to you. If you do not have a printer, you can still choose Print, and select Save to PDF. This way, you can save a copy of your application confirmation on your computer in case you need to refer to it later.
Are there limitations?
If you’re a voter with a valid PA Driver’s License or PennDOT ID number, you may apply for your ballot with an online form.
If you do not have one of these ID numbers, you will need to download a paper application and mail it to your County Board of Elections or visit your local county elections office. We can help you access and print this application at the library if you do not have a printer, or you can submit an online request to have the form mailed to you. (See below*)
What’s the difference between an absentee ballot and a mail-in ballot?
Simply put, the absentee ballot is used if or when you either (a) will not be in your municipality on election day so that you would be unable to cast your vote in person, or (b) you have a permanent illness or disability that makes it impossible for you to vote in person. Alternatively, the mail-in ballot allows any eligible voter to vote by mail instead of voting in person if they choose to.
