Information

The Chester County Library values all of the community and our users. In an effort to keep our staff, patrons, and community healthy, the library board and director made the decision to close the library to the public effective March 18, 2020 through March 31, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This page was created to provide resources to the community during our closure.
