Carnegie Library of McKeesport and its branches in Duquesne and White Oak are closed through March 29, a spokeswoman said Saturday.

All programming at the library and its branches is also cancelled through March 29. The closure was recommended by the state Office of Commonwealth Libraries, CLM said.

While the library is closed, there will be no overdue fines on items that are checked out, and any items that were requested to be held will remain held until the library reopens.

Items may be returned at the library’s drop box in White Oak Park.

When the library reopens, all toys that cannot easily be wiped clean will be removed from the Children’s Room, and all public service points, including counters, keyboard and doorknobs, will be sanitized throughout the day.

Carnegie Library of McKeesport card holders may access free eBooks, audiobooks and magazines using the Libby app at www.libbyapp.com. Free movies, TV shows, audiobooks, music and comics may be accessed at Hoopla digital at hoopladigital.com.
