Library Services and COVID-19

Check here for updates about library materials, book drops, fees, and other library services affected during the closure.

DUE DATES
All book drops are closed, and NO library materials will be due during the closure.

OVERDUE FINES
All currently checked out items have been automatically renewed, so NO overdue fees will accrue during the closure.

NEW LIBRARY CARDS
During LPL’s closure, Lancaster County residents can request a library card via email – askus@lancasterpubliclibrary.org. Once our physical doors are reopened, patrons will be asked to complete the registration process in-person.

LIBRARY CARD EXPIRATIONS
If your library card is about to expire, don’t worry. We have pushed expiration dates to June 30.

AFTER THE CLOSURE
There will be a grace period to return items when the library reopens.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to ensure the health of our community. 💙
