Johnson Memorial Library

With the opening of the Johnson Memorial Library in Millersburg, all eight of our library locations are now open. 

“We are excited to announce that all of our libraries are now open, allowing our members to browse the shelves and either use our computers or access the internet through their own laptops,’’ said Karen Cullings, executive director. “We continue to offer a wide range of services online and will keep offering curbside pickup at most of our libraries." 

The Johnson Memorial Library, which connects to the Millersburg Area high school and middle school complex, is open from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. A senior-only hour is offered from 10 to 11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at all library locations except Johnson. 

Millersburg Area School District expects to reopen schools on August 24. Students will be able to use The Library during and after school. 

Because of the continuing COVID-19 health threat, we ask all visitors to observe social distancing and wear masks, which are available for those who need them. 

Members who would like to borrow items are encouraged to request the materials online for Curbside Pickup – either through BookAdvisor or the online catalog – choosing their preferred location for pickup. Those without computer access may request materials by calling 717-652-9380.  

  • Please note that Curbside Pickup is not available at Johnson Memorial or McCormick Riverfront Libraries. 

For more information about our reopening plan, ordering materials, accessing the vast array of online programming, databases, eBooks, eAudiobooks and other information, please visit dcls.org.
