Swissvale Library is open with temporary hours.

Swissvale Library’s phased reopening continues with limited services and temporary reopening hours. We are open from 10 - 4 on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and from 12 - 6 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Library visits and computer sessions will be limited to 30 minutes, the number of patrons in the building at any one time will be limited to 15, and staff will regularly sanitize surfaces and computers.


There are some temporary changes.

Patrons are expected to wear face coverings, maintain social distancing, and not come in if they are sick. Curbside and contactless services are still available, including pickup of holds, returning of items, and WiFi printing. Click here for contactless service procedures. We look forward to welcoming you back!

As we phase into our regular activities, we will not be accepting donations of books, magazines, movies, puzzles, etc.
