ASTON LIBRARY NEWS–
The Library building remains closed indefinitely due to the Coronavirus situation. Check at www.astonlibrary.org or call 610-494-5877 to check our latest status.
The Library anticipates that once the facility is able to open, it will offer limited service at first, with only pick-up of requested materials available, and other assistance over the phone. Wearing of masks and social distancing will be required at that time. This will be some time after the Governor has moved Delaware County from “Red” to “Yellow” status.
No library materials will be due until at least May 22nd due to the crisis.
