Downtown Branch is CLOSED today

Update #5 (Jan 4)
The downtown branch is now open for business with running water!

The pump has been successfully installed this past week. Although there will still be general construction and clean up, nothing should get in the way of general library operations. The lower level bathrooms will be closed until floor repairs are complete.

Thank you to everyone for their patience and understanding. We are thrilled to welcome you all back!

Update #4 (Dec 26)
The Morgantown downtown branch will remain closed through this coming week. After days of extensive investigations and resourceful engineering, we have discovered an aging infrastructure with loose pipes and drainage issues.

The good news is a solution is currently underway: The underground pipes have been sealed and in the next week, we will install a pump lift station in the library basement to aid in proper water drainage. We will update you with a definitive opening date as soon as we learn more.

This is also a reminder that all other Morgantown Public Library branches are still open during regular business hours and our digital library is accessible 24/7 to any cardholder (http://www.mympls.org/download-it/). Access ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, comics, music, tutorials, research tools, and much more with a click of a button.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Feel free to message us here or email us at askmympls@gmail.com should you require further assistance.


Update #3 (Dec 23)

The Morgantown downtown branch remains closed for the remainder of the week. Currently, the water has been turned off in the building and the Morgantown Utility Board has been hard at work finding a solution. Engineers and workers have dug large hole in front of the library to gain access to the city’s underground pipes but the source of the problem is still yet to be determined. Be sure to check here for updates as well as a potential reopening date.

This is also a reminder that all other Morgantown Public Library locations will be closed for the holiday on the 24th and the 25th.  However, our digital library is accessible 24/7 to any cardholder (http://www.mympls.org/download-it/). Access ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, movies, comics, music, tutorials, research tools, and much more with a click of a button.
