Drop in to Perry County District Library…no appointment necessary!

 

Beginning April 5, 2021, all Perry County District Library locations opened for regular operating hours with no appointments necessary.  After many months of preparation and precaution, the library staff is excited to welcome visitors at any time, while abiding by maximum occupancy limits.  All visitors, with the exception of those under the age of 2, will be required to wear masks.  Curbside services will continue to be offered for those who prefer the convenience of this service.  The library staff members are planning a mix of virtual and in-person outdoor programs for summer, and continue to offer grab-n-go program bags for all ages.  For a complete calendar of upcoming events, visit the library website at www.pcdl.org.
