  • Coronavirus

We know that our members are fully aware of the present and ongoing issues surrounding Coronavirus. In order to properly and fully maintain the ability to provide services to our membership and the public without interruption, we have determined at this time, that it is in the best interest of our staff and users to reduce the library’s operational hours from 10 am to 4 pm for Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20. The library will be fully operational with email, phone and staffing during these hours. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation on a weekly basis.

We remain dedicated to serving our membership and the public. On behalf of the entire staff and our Board of Directors we wish you, your families and coworkers well. Despite these difficult times, we look forward to continuing to provide our valued members and the public with the best possible services. Further information regarding our operational status will be available on our website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact either of our Co-Executive Directors, Ida Weingram (215.574.7935, or Nancy Garner (215.574.7944,

Once again, we wish you, your families and co-workers well.
