We’ve Missed You! – The library re-opened back in July 2020 with strict COVID-19 rules.  As time has passed, restrictions have gradually lifted and allowed us to get back to a comfortable environment. This summer, we are looking forward to seeing patrons browse the books, DVD’s, and resources that are available. The doors open at 10:00 am, Monday through Saturday. Come in and see us!  There is coffee brewing, new titles, and friendly faces to greet you. The library remains open until 8:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 5:00 pm on Fridays, and 3:00 pm on Saturdays.  We carefully clean and hope we offer a place where you can feel safe, exploring and rediscovering all there is at Moyer District Library.
