Sewickley Public Library, 500 Thorn St., once again offers express library services.
The Express Library gives users the ability to enter the library to browse the collection, view items, and use public computers. The library takes precautions to ensure the safety of library staff and patrons, including requiring masks for all patrons, increasing cleaning and disinfection of heavily used areas, providing hours for those at high risk, and by limiting visit times to 30 minutes.
Meetings, private work or study sessions, and gatherings are not permitted.
Curbside pickup is always available.

Get Lit Book Club
Dubbed âa social remedy for your average book club,â this 21-plus-year-old book club focuses on bold, irreverent and contemporary titles. Each month, members will meet in a cafe or bar to discuss the books over a latte or cocktail. The May 18 meeting will take place via Zoom – BYOB – at 7 p.m. ET. Anna North’s “Outlaw” will be up for discussion.
