Open with COVID-19 Protocols

Updated: Aug 13

IN SUMMARY: Starting Monday, June 29, 2020, WCPL is open on a curtailed schedule for inside holds pick-up and browsing. New hours are posted on our homepage and below. Masks are required (excepting very young children & for valid medical reasons); 30-minute limit per visit; max 15 people in building; 2 public computers are available for max 30-minute sessions.


The West Chester Public Library will be open for you to come to pick up holds and do some browsing. We ask that everyone limit their time in the building to 30 minutes, as we will be limiting the number of people in the building at any one time. Entrance will be via the main door (terrace); the Lafayette St. door will be exit only. We also ask that everyone entering the building please wear a mask or face-covering (very young children excepted) for everyone’s health and safety.

Green Phase hours: Mondays, 10:00am to 5:00pm Tuesdays, 11:00am to 6:00pm Wednesdays, 12:00pm to 7:00pm Thursdays, 11:00am to 6:00pm Fridays, 10:00am to 5:00pm Saturdays, 10:00am to 2:00pm

As always, thank you for your understanding and patience. And, we DO look forward to seeing you in person – socially distanced, of course!  

Please note – each library in the CC Library System will set their own opening date and hours.

Please continue to return materials in our book drop. For the health and safety of staff and our customers, we are quarantining all returned items for 72 hours before we check them in. When we do check in materials, we will ensure that no fines remain on anyone’s record for those items. Please follow the Do’s and Don’ts outlined in the image here to safely disinfect books at home.
