And Helpful Information

The COVID-19 pandemic changed a lot of things and we at the library want you to be informed of not only our policies, which are intended to create the safest and healthiest environment possible, but also resources that are available to you if you have been negatively impacted by the effects of these trying times.

Currently, the Chester County Library is open to the public. Masks are optional but we do ask that all patrons respect the opinions of each patron and their decision to wear or not wear a mask. We do ask that if you are sick with any illness that is contagious (COVID or not), to please not enter the library for the safety and health of our staff and patrons. We do offer curbside services. 

For patrons that currently have materials checked out and have been diagnosed with COVID19. Please call the library at 731-989-4673 to discuss an extension on your library materials. 

Please know that there is germ-x in the foyer of the library, and on two tables within the library for your convienance. Staff members use a specific disinfectant at the end of every business day on all door handles, computers, and regularly touched surfaces.
