Due to recent circumstances, the Williamsburg Public Library will be going to contactless/appointment service only effective Monday, November 30th. We feel that this is the best way to ensure the delivery of services while keeping you, our patrons, and our staff as safe and healthy as possible.
What does that mean?
Contactless service includes our Little Porch Library and our Bag a Book Program.
The Little Porch Library is available 24/7, with a variety of reading material. Take what you want, and drop anything you are finished with in the green book drop box.
The Bag a Book program is available during regular library hours. Let us know what books you want. Call us at 814-832-3367, send us a message on FaceBook, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can request specific titles, or tell us what kind of book you are interested in, such as mystery, romance, or thriller, and we will find it for you. You can always check out our online card catalog at https://williamsburg.sparkpa.org/eg/opac/home.
We will also make a limited number of appointments to browse the collection and to use a computer, make copies or send a fax. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
Membership to the Williamsburg is Free – this includes your first library card. Our cards work at any Blair County Library.
Bestsellers and new books circulate for 14 days, all others for 28 days.
Books borrowed from any Blair County Library may be returned at our library. The Book Return on the porch of the library – beside the front door – may be used when the library is closed.
If our library does not have a requested book, we can request it from other local libraries or other libraries in our state through Access Pennsylvania.
Fax service is available. The cost to send a fax is $2.25 for the first page and $1.25 for every page thereafter. The cost to receive a fax is $1.00 a page. Our fax number is 814-832-3845.
Internet Service is free to patrons with current library cards. Anyone under 18 years of age must have parental consent. Students under 10th grade must be accompanied by a parent.
