2736765_lWe made a mistake! Books and other library materials that were checked out on last Saturday and early Monday have the wrong due date of January 2. We are closed on Monday, January 2 to celebrate the new year. Therefore no library materials will be due that day. The due date will actually be Tuesday, January 3.

If you have any questions, please call 610-867-3761.

Our apologies for the confusion!!!
