Our COVID-19 Protection Plans and Current Hours

Note: Masks will continue to be required at all four Perry county libraries for patrons and employees while we evaluate the shifts in state and CDC guidance.

  • Bloomfield Public Library Social distancing and masks are required. Only 5 patrons at one time in the Library (This now includes children except infants). Patrons are limited to 1 hour in the library, including computer and wifi use. Face masks must be worn correctly (over mouth and nose), refusal to do so will result in being told to leave (we do have a limited supply of masks for those who forget theirs). The Non-Fiction room will be closed, please see the Librarian if you need a non-fiction book. We are still offering Curbside Service the last hour of the day, please call us for more information. This might be expanded if there is a need.

Precautionary measures for our visitors/patrons will be provided due to the recent virus pandemic. We request only 2 people enter the library at one time, until further notice. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact the library at 717-536-3761 or wppublib@pa.net. If you are not comfortable entering the library at this time, books can be reserved on-line and picked up at the library.
