Library Operations Status

November 23, 2020 Update 

The Chester County Library System is happy to update you on the current status of our Member Libraries.

The open status varies from location to location depending upon many factors. Please check with the library (https://www.ccls.org/189/Contact-Us) before visiting for times and restrictions.  CCLS Libraries have curbside or non-contact pickup as well as non-scheduled in building pickup available.  You can 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.  Note: as libraries moved to in-person service, its curbside service may have changed.

  • In order to comply with CDC guidelines, all materials that are returned will be subject to a 72-hour quarantine.  No fines will accrue while materials are in quarantine.  Staff will not be checking them in immediately, so if you are looking at your record, they will not clear right away. 
  • Many of our virtual services continue, especially programming. Please check your local library’s website for the programs and services available
  • The following chart shows services available at each CCLS Member Library location
