Library System News Template.jpg

According to the County’s COVID weekly data update we’re currently in a period of high transmission.

Please know that restrictions will continually evolve as the science is reviewed. We rely on the professionals for guidance.   

Current CDC Guidelines recommend that all individuals wear masks in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status, in areas of substantial or high transmission. Chester County is currently an area of substantial transmission.

We continue to keep this page as up to date as possible, however as always, please check with your local library for specific restrictions before visiting.
