Mifflin, Juniata counties’ libraries to open Monday
JCL to offer only curbside service
From staff reports
Libraries in Mifflin and Juniata counties will reopen Monday.
The Mifflin County Library will open both of its branches — the main branch in Lewistown and the Kish branch in Belleville — to customers, although restrictions will be in place. The Juniata County Library in Mifflintown will offer curbside service as well.
Both Lewistown and Kish will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday; and noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday. The library will be closed Friday and Sunday. The first hour each day is for high-risk patrons.
Juniata County Library will begin offering curbside service (the library is still closed to patrons). Library hours are 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 3 to 6:30 p.m. Friday.
Some services will not be available at first.
Juniata County is not offering Inter-Library Loan services, nor personal services like copies, faxes or scanning. In Mifflin County, you will still be able to make copies, send faxes and pick up tax and rent rebate forms. Computers are available but are limited, including the 30-minute limit on use.
Book donations are not being accepted in Juniata County either. Holds are allowed by calling ahead or visiting the website at juniatalibrary.org. Returns are part of the curbside service.
Mifflin County is accepting returns only through the book drop. Only books are circulating at this time, and most other items are not available for patron use.
The Mifflin County Library also requires patrons to wear a mask to enter the building.
