Computer Assistance

Need a computer to finish your homework or just feel like surfing the web? Then come to the library! We have  computers available for use in the Children's Department and the Children's Librarian is happy to provide computer assistance. Computers may be used for one hour. Time can be extended if there is no one else waiting for a turn. Preschool children need to have an adult or caregiver with them to use a computer. 

Class Visits to the Library

The Children's Department at the Pottsville Free Public Library welcomes class visits. We host programs for  local daycares, schools, girl and cub scout troops and after school programs. If getting your group to the library is a problem, call us and maybe we can come to you! Just contact the Children's Department at 570-622-8880 ext. 12 to arrange a visit.
