System Annual Report 2020 Cover

Tuesday, April 27, 2021

Thank you to everyone for your support of libraries! 

Please click here to view our 2020 System Annual Report: Annual-Report-2020 ( 

Take a few minutes to look through it, especially at what each library listed as their top 3 outcomes for 2020. It is an amazing list!

In a year that was like none in recent memory, our CCLS Board President William Connor stated,

“2020 brought us a range of challenges never encountered before. How do we continue to serve the citizens of Chester County in an environment that maintains the safety of both staff and patrons? How do we adapt to an ever-changing list of pandemic requirements and still provide top-of-the-line services to a community that especially needs us?

Our staff and member libraries rose to the challenge; adapting and innovating throughout the year. Through curbside pickup and increased use of ebooks, the Library System pushed out materials for the community to use for research, education, news sources, and general reading in a manner that preserved both safety and convenience.”

In 2021, we will continue “Exploring All We Can Do”.
