June Library News


The Library building remains closed indefinitely due to the Coronavirus situation.  The Library does not anticipate that access to the building will be permitted until after Delaware County reaches the “Green” stage.  However, other services may be offered.  Check at www.astonlibrary.org or call 610-494-5877 to see 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.  

No library materials will be due until at least June 22nd due to the crisis.
