All York County Library Locations Are Now Open! We Look Forward to Seeing You!

The next phase of our reopening plan has begun! The following in-person services are available:


  • Branch operating hours are the same as curbside hours.

  • Browsing and borrowing materials (we recommend a visit of 30 minutes in consideration of other patrons waiting to enter).

  • Checkout and general assistance at service desks

  • Take and Make Kits available (kits vary by location)

  • Computer use limited to 30-minute sessions

  • Curbside pickup for holds and mobile printing

For your health and safety:

  • Please wear a mask inside the library.

  • Please do not enter the library if you are feeling sick or have a temperature over 100.4°F.

  • Space is limited in the library due to social distancing, so you may experience a wait before entering a branch.

  • Patrons and staff must maintain six feet of distance from other people, when possible.

  • Public programs, seating areas, tables, meeting rooms, and water fountains are unavailable; however, virtual programs will continue.

  • Returns are accepted at outside book drops only.

  • All items returned are being quarantined for 96 hours before they are processed, checked back in, and recirculated.

  • Staff are not handling cash at this time.

For more information, see our Phase 3 Overview, continue to check our website, Library Updates, and Facebook pages, or contact us. Thank you for your patience.

What the Community is Saying About YCL ...

I am so grateful for all the on-line resources and curbside service. I miss my in-person book club! I think our library does an outstanding job of serving all the public with not the biggest budget.
