Dear Library Patrons: 

The leadership at the Ephrata Public Library is monitoring the status of COVID-19 in our local community.
The Office of Commonwealth Libraries has ordered all public libraries closed through March 29.

Please remember that our book drops are always open. We would prefer, however, that you keep your items until we reopen. There will be no overdue fines.

All Library programs and meeting room rentals in the Library building and Community Commons have been canceled through April 5. The .002 Booksellers, scheduled to reopen next week after remodeling, will REMAIN CLOSED until further notice. The Government Services Office is also closed.

We will still be holding the program “Learn More About Coronavirus” on March 18 at 6 p.m., but this program will be streamed on Facebook without a live audience. 

I encourage you to check out the online resources available through our website ( Enjoy ebooks and audiobooks with Overdrive/Libby and ebooks, audiobooks, TV shows and movies on Hoopla or entertain the kids with Tumblebooks, Bookflix, and TrueFlix.

The WIC program and Utility Assistance Program, run by Community Action Partnership and located in the Community Commons building, will follow their own operational schedule. Please contact them directly for further information.
