February 9, 2021 Update

 

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

 

In the event of hazardous weather conditions or other unforeseen circumstances, services may be different from what is listed here. Please check with your specific library (https://www.ccls.org/189/Contact-Us) before visiting.

 

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 have curbside or non-contact pickup, while some also have in-building pickup availableYou 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.

 

**CHANGED** All returned materials will be subject to a 48-hour quarantine. No fines will accrue while materials are in quarantine. Please note: staff will not be checking items in immediately. If you are looking at your record, items will not appear as cleared right away.

 

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/
