Dearest library patrons,

With the closing of the library and the mandate to shelter in place we are sure many of you might be looking for a way to read. If you weren’t already aware of the e-reading resources we have available we would like to introduce you to CloudLibrary and OverDrive/Libby. These apps are available for download onto your device and from there you are able to check out books and audios. We also have an app for magazine reading we will be highlighting in our next post.

All you will need to access these materials is your library card number and password (which is normally the last four numbers of your library card number).

If you need any help accessing these resources we will respond, on a limited schedule, to emails at: [email protected]

Anyone who lives or owns property inside the city limits of Petersburg is able to apply for a library card and use the many wonderful services the library provides!!

03/14/2020

The Petersburg Public Library will be closing on March 17th for the health and well-being of our library community. This will afford a measure of safety for all, patrons and staff. The dates of our closure will be the same as PORTA's school closing, through March 30th. The plan is to re-open on Tuesday, March 31st. We will be monitoring phone messages, emails, and Facebook posts and responding as we are able. Any items due within this time frame are not subject to fines and if any do accrue, they will be waived.

The library book sale starts at 10am tomorrow morning and runs during normal business hours through Saturday. There are many boxes of children’s books, perfect for the 25 books of Christmas activity many parents love (especially since it will cost you less than $7). We also have tables and tables of adult fiction to help you read through the long cold winter. Come out and support the library!!
