Clymer Library and Winter Weather Closure

During the winter months, please be aware that Clymer Library may be closed due to the weather.

Clymer Library follows the weather-closure schedule of the Pocono Mountain School District. So if the Pocono Mountain School District is closed due to weather, Clymer Library is also closed. If there is a 2 hour delay, Clymer will open at 12pm. If there is an early dismissal due to weather, Clymer will also close early.

In the case that we may be closed, no fines will accrue for that business day.

If you are unsure whether we are open or not, the best thing to do is to call us at 570-646-0826 during business hours. If we do not answer and you hear an answering machine, that is a good indication that we may be closed.
