Glasses for April 8 solar eclipse

Beginning Monday, March 18 Eclipse Glasses will be available for people 18 and over at all four Perry County PA library locations- Newport, Marysville, New Bloomfield, and Blain. In order to obtain a pair of free Eclipse Glasses you will pick up a quiz sheet and travel around the library to answer the eight eclipse trivia questions. The program will continue until the eclipse, or until all glasses are given out on a first come, first served basis.

Changes to Interlibrary Loan, effective Jan. 11, 2024

Due to increased shipping costs, effective January 11, 2024, the Capital Area Library District member libraries, including Perry County libraries, will provide Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services using the Access Pennsylvania (Access PA) catalog to obtain the items you request. Items will no longer come from out of state libraries. District loans will continue to come from the catalogs of the three counties, as usual (Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry).
