Curbside Pickup and Coronavirus Information

Due to the significant increase of COVID-19 cases in Crawford and surrounding counties, MPL is prioritizing the health and safety of their staff and patrons by temporarily closing in-person library service to help mitigate the spread of the virus in the community. Patrons can reserve items by calling the library (814-336-1773) or by placing a hold online at The book return will remain open and no fines will be charged for late materials.

In-Library Pickup

Materials can be picked up at the side entrance of the Children’s Room. Pickup and curbside delivery service hours will be Monday–Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All reserved materials will be checked out to the patron’s library card and placed into a bag labeled with their first and last name. Patrons can pick up their ordered materials by just walking in the Children’s entrance and picking their bag off the shelf. MPL staff will monitor the entrance and answer any questions. 

Curbside Pickup

We offer curbside pickup for all reading materials. Library users can reserve materials online through the library catalog or by calling the library. Once your hold has been confirmed, please call us at 814-336-1773 to schedule a pickup time.

Due to the colder weather, the pickup location will now be in front of the library on North Main Street. When arriving we please ask patrons to call  MPL and the materials will then be delivered to your vehicle.

In an effort to speed up the pickup process, Patrons are encouraged to limit their hold requests to 5 items per adult card and 10 items per child card.
