Sewickley Township Public Library

New Events and Classes

We know that Bingo Cards & Activity Logs are some of the most popular activities during our Summer Reading Program. So, we decided to do a SPRING READING PROGRAM featuring updated versions of these games! Cards and Logs may be turned in within 2 weeks of the Library reopening (date to be determined.) Earn raffle tickets for a chance to win gift cards to Chick-fil-A, AMC, Target, Dunkin’ Donuts, Amazon, Dairy Queen and more! Open to all kids ages 0-18, no registration necessary. We want this to be EASY & FUN for our families, so feel free to adapt the activities as needed to your current situation. Please email us at sewickley@wlnonline.org with any questions and to let us know if you are participating!

SUMMER READING PROGRAM COMES EARLY!!





COVID-19 Update: Tuesday, March 17th

A message from Mandy Luchs, Library Director

Late Friday afternoon, Governor Tom Wolf instructed all public libraries in Pennsylvania to close, in an attempt to slow down the spread of COVID-19. We know that this would have been the perfect time for people to stock up on great reading and wonderful movie choices, so we realize that closing now will be a major disappointment to many of our patrons. We hope that the restrictions will be lifted as planned and not be extended beyond two weeks.

In any case, the library is taking whatever steps it can to keep providing library service. Here are a few ways:

You can still reach us through email, phone, or our library Facebook page. Staff will be in the library periodically to return phone calls. If we do not answer when you call, please leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.

We have changed the settings on our automated library software to turn off overdue fines and to turn on automatic renewals. You can still call us if you wish to renew, but you won’t have to. Please note, items won’t automatically renew if someone has placed a hold on that item’s waiting list, but you will not be charged any fines for that item.

Libraries across Westmoreland County are working to add many titles to our online collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks: https://westmoreland.overdrive.com/ so that you will have a wide selection to choose from. The collection currently hosts over 9,400 eBooks and 1,740 eAudiobooks. Please contact us by phone or email for assistance.

Beginning today, any Pennsylvania resident over the age of 13 who does not already have a Westmoreland Library Network card can register online for a digital library card that gives you access to Westmoreland Library Network’s eBook and eAudio collections. You will need to enter your name, birthday, mailing address and email address.

To register, visit this page and click the “register now” link.

In addition to online registration, we’re opening access to our OverDrive collection to all cardholders, even if you owe fines.

We will continue to post updates and information on our Facebook page and through these emails.

Thank you for your patience, and please do not hesitate to reach out. Stay safe and take care.
