Holiday Season Hours
We at the Chester County Library System hope that everyone has a safe, happy and healthy holiday season. All Chester County Library System libraries are closed on Thursday December 25th and January 1st. However, many of our libraries have adjusted their hours throughout the Holiday Season; please check to ensure your library is open prior to visiting this week.
New Downingtown Library Opening soon!
Renovations are nearly complete at the Micken Building at 122 Wallace Avenue to create a new home for the Downingtown Library. Located in the center of town and adjacent to Kerr Park, the new facility provides:

• ADA accessibility
• An expanded technology center
• An enhanced collection of resources
• Ample parking and a drive-up book drop
• A comfortable Community Center

This excellent adaptive re-use of property allows the Library to function more efficiently and effectively as a 21st century resource center for the Greater Downingtown Community.

The Downingtown Library will close to the public December 29th with a projected reopen date in the new location of January 7th… Stay tuned for updates after the 1st of the year!
