The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library has been closely monitoring information about the coronavirus (COVID-19), and is actively taking steps to help protect our staff and library users and reduce the spread of the virus.

For current resources and updates regarding COVID-19, visit the resources listed here.

 

The Grundy Library building is CLOSED until further notice. Your safety and the safety of our staff is of the utmost importance. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak and will update this page once we determine a date for re-opening. In the interim, we are adjusting due dates and extending hold pickup dates. Fines will not accrue throughout the time we are closed.

The Bucks County Library branches have announced that they will begin restoring services on June 8th. For more details on their plan for reopening, visit the Bucks County Libraries website. The Bucks County Libraries plan is only applicable to their branches. Other libraries in Bucks County have different timelines for reopening and we encourage you to check with your local library for details.

Grundy Library's plan fo reopening is currently under development and, once finalized, we will update this page with more details. In the meantime, thank you for your patience, we look forward to seeing you soon. 
 

Our book drop is currently closed. Please keep library materials until we reopen.

 

In addition, all library programs, outreach, and meeting room bookings are canceled through August 31. We will extend these cancellations as needed. 

 

The library will continue to follow the guidance of local, county, and state governments and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). When the time comes, we will provide updates through our website and social media.

 

In the meantime, you can continue to access the library's resources 24/7 from home:

  • Borrow free ebooks, e-audiobooks, and e-magazines
  • Stream free music, movies and videos 
  • Stay informed and learn something new 
  • Ask-a-Librarian - contact us via email (response times may be delayed but we will get back to you as soon as we can) or chat with a librarian 24/7 (may not connect you with a local librarian)

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented time. Information about other library closures in Bucks County can be found here.

How can you help?

As a reminder, the best ways to reduce the risk of getting sick, as with seasonal colds or the flu, still applies to the prevention of COVID-19:

  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • If you have recently returned from a country, state or region with ongoing COVID-19 infections, monitor your health and follow the instructions of public health officials
  • Vulnerable individuals, which are defined as 60+ years old or who have health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and weakened immune systems are recommended to limit outings, avoid large gatherings, telecommute if possible, stay home if they are sick and avoid people who are sick

Please refer to the CDC website for frequently asked questions.
