The Chester County Library System is happy to continue to update you on the current status of our Member Libraries.
** Changes April 13th** With the recent information on surface transmission not being as concerning as it once was. All returned materials are no longer subject to quarantine. Note: It may take us a few days to get all of the backlogs checked in, we are returning to business as usual for returned items.
The chart on this page shows current services available at each CCLS Member Library location: https://www.ccls.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=226
This page shows the hours of each library (for browsing access and curbside/non-contact pickup): https://ccls.libcal.com/hours/
Currently, most CCLS Libraries continue to have curbside or non-contact pickup, while many have in-building pickup available. You are able to borrow library materials by reserving online or calling your library. To schedule curbside pickups (when materials are ready for you) go to https://bit.ly/cclscurbside. Each library has specific procedures for you to follow when you receive notification that items are ready.
Access to our Electronic materials; OverDrive e-books & e-audio (https://chester.overdrive.com/) and Flipster e-magazines (https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,cpid&custid=s5061716&profile=eon) are available with a library card. General info is available here (https://www.ccls.org/305/eMaterials).
Access to seating, length of visit, and computer access regulations are determined at each member. Please check with the member library you are visiting for any changes.
Many of our virtual services continue, especially programming. Please check your local library’s website for the programs and services available or the system-wide events calendar here: https://ccls.libcal.com/
Stay safe and Healthy in 2021!
