The Marian Sutherland Kirby Library, serving 6 townships and 1 borough with a combined population of approximately 18,242 residents, is a member of the Luzerne County Library System.


The library follows the inclement weather closing & delay schedule of the Crestwood School District.

In the event of an early dismissal from school when the library is already open, the Library Director will make the decision as to whether the library will close early.

The library does not follow closings & delays due to frigid weather conditions.

Closings & delays will be posted on the library's Facebook page & website at www.kirbylib.org. You may call the library at 570-474-9313 to make certain the library is open before you venture out.
