Has Your Library Card Expired?

To increase efficiency, reduce costs and improve service the Chester County Library System is currently updating and digitizing our patron account records.

If you obtained your library card prior to June 2013 you need to:

  • Re-register your library card at any member library
  • Complete a new application form
  • Present ID that verifies current address

Library cards obtained prior to June 2013 that have not been re-registered as described above expired on July 4, 2016.

Not sure when you got your library card? Contact your home library for more information.
