What the community is saying about YCL...

Thanks to the York County Library's online resources, our reading has not slowed down a bit during the shutdown! We have enjoyed many Kindle books and Audiobooks during this time. My daughter is now hooked on listening to Audiobooks during our runs/walks. Thank you for supporting our community!
