Eastridge Library Update

Good news! We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for Eastridge branch library's reopening; the assessment of the extent of the damages has taken longer than anticipated. On the positive side, we've received word that repairs to all the damaged portions of the restrooms will begin shortly. Soon patrons will be able to enjoy the services of Eastridge branch library. Word will go out immediately when we are ready to reopen through the library website | through Facebook - Wilkinsburg Public Library and Wilkinsburg Borough | on Twitter @WilkinsburgBoro | as well as signs on the library door. Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding during this time.
