Updated March 17, 2020

The Office of Commonwealth Libraries has asked all public libraries in the state to close beginning Saturday, March 14 and to remain closed through Sunday, March 29, a time period which coincides with school closures.

All library-sponsored programs and meeting room bookings are canceled until March 29. This includes group events, outreach programs and individual technology help appointments. Fines will be waived for items due during the closure. Materials can be returned in our book drop 24/7. Holds are unable to be placed or fulfilled at this time.

The Thomas Beaver Free Library will be playing our part to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus by closing.   We know how important the Library is to the people in the community, and please know our most important concern is for everyone’s health and safety.

Don’t worry about the items you have checked out.  All checkout items have been renewed until April 13.   If you want to return items, you can put them in the dropbox.

Please feel free to contact the Library by phone (570-275-4180), email ( or Facebook with any questions or concerns.
