The Pennsylvania Department of Education has instructed public libraries to close from Saturday, March 14, through Sunday, March 29, as part of the ongoing effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The Hazleton Area Public Library, and all of our branch libraries, will be closed during that time. Online library services will still be available.

All library programs are cancelled during this time. Our book return box will still be available, but we will waive all fines during our closure since many are trying to limit public interaction.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please continue to check the website and our Facebook page for updates. We will share information and keep you up to date as this situation develops.

The Luzerne County Library System and Wilkes-Barre Library District are in the process of updating our eBook/eAudio platform to provide users with a better experience. During the upgrade, our eBook resources will be interrupted. eBooks will be unavailable for checkout between March 1 and March 17. We expect to have our new services fully operational by the end of March. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Watch for more info and training.
