OUR PLEDGE TO YOU
Please know that we are doing everything we can to help ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and patrons. The safety of you and your family is paramount in all our decisions.
*Please note: All Chester County libraries will be quarantining any returned material for three (3) days. During this time, you will still see that material on your library account, but no fines will be accumulating.
*Please also note: The quarantine process will significantly increase the wait time for material arriving from other Chester County Libraries. We are sorry for this inconvenience.
