Masks Mandated For All Library Programs and Storytimes

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Cranberry Public Library, along with Cranberry Township, has been monitoring recommendations from the Department of Health and Education, as well as CDC guidelines to determine safety protocols for Cranberry Public Library.

Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 transmission and in abundance of caution, the Library will be mandating masks for all adults and children 2 years of age & older during all library programs and storytimes. The expectation is that masks will be required while Butler County has substantial or high transmission levels.

The Library and Township continue to monitor both state and local guidance and request understanding that protocols and expectations could change. Changes will be communicated via the Library’s website.

ABC and Infant Storytimes are back in person!
Storytimes are limited to 25 total participants (adults and children). You must register each child and adult separately. Only one adult per family, please. 
To register for storytimes, click here or call us at 724-776-9100 ext 1124.
