Adult Summer Reading Bingo is Here!

Summer Reading Bingo

It's that time of year!  Adult Summer Reading has started at the Wilkinsburg Public Library.  This year we're introducing a twist on summer reading with summer reading bingo!  Pick up a card in the library or print one out.  Read 5 library books to get a bingo on your card then turn it in for entry into the grand prize drawing!

Don't feel like reading that many books? Pick up or print out an individul slip.  Turn it in for entry into a prize drawing!

Summer reading ends August 20th, 2016.



Starting Thursday, May 26 at 10:00 am our Eastridge Branch will once again be open!  Our regular hours of operation will resume.  Please remember that we will be closed this coming Saturday for the Memorial Day weekend.

A giant thank you to the Wilkinsburg Borough Department of Public Works for all the hours they've spent making repairs and restoring our restroom facilities.

Thanks also to all our patrons for your patience and understanding during the time we've had to close.
