York County Library is monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) with local, state, and national health officials. As all information is subject to change, please continue to check our Coronavirus and Facebook pages. For free e-books, audiobooks, and more, visit our Virtual Library!

All York County Library locations are now open for limited curbside services only.

Anyone with a regular, physical York County Library card can check out materials they have placed on hold (books, audiobooks, DVDs, ILLs, and HotSpots). Patrons with eCards can have them converted to a regular York County Library card by calling their local YCL location during curbside pickup hours. Outside book drops remain open, and items will be properly quarantined for 4 days (96 hours) before being checked in. Notifications of overdue items will be made during this time, and overdue fees will be waived once items are checked in. Please call your nearest YCL location during curbside service hours to notify staff before returning Book Club Kits and Kinder Kits. For more information, see our Phase 2 Overview, continue to check our website and Facebook page, or contact us. Thank you for your patience.
