Library Services Impacted by Cyber Incident

The Northampton Area Public Library experienced a network outage due to a ransomware attack. The affected servers were taken offline and some library services have already been restored. It may be several days before all library services are fully operational. All book drops are open at this time to accept returns and we hope to open to the public soon.

We apologize for the inconvenience this outage is causing our patrons and ask for patience as we work to get all services back online. We are working closely with our IT company to help prevent future attacks.
