Downingtown Library reopens!

Library info

Hi all! We are thrilled to welcome patrons back inside the Downingtown Library starting Monday, 3/29/21 for browsing, computer access, copying, printing! Please read the information below to prepare for your visit- and please help us remain open by complying with all the library visit requirements! Thank you all so much for your patience as we’ve weathered this difficult year. We look forward to seeing you in person!
COVID-19: Do not enter the library if you have symptoms associated with COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19 and are in the isolation period, are waiting on a COVID-19 test, or have come in contact with someone with COVID-19 and have been told to quarantine.
COMPUTERS: 3 socially-distanced public computers are available on a first come/first serve basis for a 30 minute session maximum, once per day per patron. No extensions are available due to fewer numbers of computers available. Very limited computer help is available as staff need to remain socially-distant from patrons. Patrons are encouraged to bring a helper if they need one. 
BROWSING: 15 minute browsing of the whole library collection. Please keep your visit as brief as possible to allow as many patrons to visit the library as possible throughout the day. Please wait to enter the library or vacate the library if needed to honor occupancy limits when directed by staff.
CLOSED AREAS: The Miller Family children’s play area, Krapf program room, Hessinger study room, and restrooms remain closed. 
MASKS and SOCIAL DISTANCING: The Downingtown Library COVID Policy requires that all patrons over the age of 2 wear a face-mask over their mouth and nose for the duration of their visit to the library. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, please contact the library and we will try to accommodate you. Please practice Social Distancing of 6 feet while in the library, and do not enter the library vestibule for Library To Go curbside pickup if another patron is already inside. (
PROGRAMS:  Continue virtually, with in-person programs coming soon. 
ITEM RETURNS: Please return all items in the library book returns outside.
