The Thomas Beaver Free Library is currently limiting service to curbside delivery only.  We realize how important the Library is for the community, and we do not take this step lightly. Curbside delivery is the safest way for patrons to receive library materials and for patrons to avoid contact with each other and with staff.   
Nothing is more important to the board and staff than the Thomas Beaver Free Library than the community we serve.   We are monitoring the spike in our area’s COVID cases and have heard the warnings to expect an additional post-Thanksgiving surge.  The number of hospitalizations and patients in the ICU from COVID are both increasing.  We are also mindful of the number of healthcare workers in our community, and we feel a responsibility to do what we can to mitigate the spread of the virus for their health and safety as well as our patrons and staff.   
Many of our patrons are already reserving books through the library catalog and can continue to do so.  You can also place your requests by phone  (570-275-4180) or email (tbflstaff@ptd.net).   If you are not sure what you’d like to read or watch, let us know your general interests, and we will pick something out for you.  
We will give you a call when your items are ready for pick-up.  When you arrive at the Library, give us a call, and they will bring them out to your car or meet you at the curb.  
We have extended the loan period for books to 28 days so you can stock up and not feel pressure to leave home to return them.    If you have items you have finished using, you can return them to the book drop.  All returned items are quarantined for at least six days before they go back into circulation.  If you are unable to return your library materials for any reason, just give us a call.   Late fees will be waived. 
On behalf of our staff and board members, please be safe.   We will miss seeing you in the building but look forward to seeing you safe and healthy at the curb.  —
