East Library to Close Through Next Week
East Library, 430 Early Rd., is temporarily closed due to a COVID-19-related staffing shortage and is expected to reopen on Monday, September 13. During the closure, East will be deep cleaned and sanitized.
As a reminder, all Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County (PLYMC) staff is required to wear masks, and patrons are encouraged to wear them while visiting the Library. In addition, all PLYMC branches have needlepoint bipolar ionization (NBPI) devices installed to help neutralize viruses, allergens, and other harmful airborne particles. This technology was purchased with funds from the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help libraries operate and serve the public safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Patrons can use the Library’s website, https://www.libraryvisit.org/, to access online services 24/7 or visit any open branch of the PLYMC.
