Effective 5/18/2020: We are excited to announce the reopening plans for St. Petersburg’s libraries in the coming weeks in accordance with state guidelines as well as Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, including physical distancing of 6 ft. or more from others.

Computer access will be available by appointment at the James Weldon Johnson, North, and South Community Libraries. Book returns will be open at the Main and Mirror Lake Community Libraries. Please note that due dates have been extended to July 1 for all PPLC library materials.
