If the Library is unexpectedly closed due to bad weather, please keep your items at home and do not return your materials to the outside book drop. You will not receive any late fees while the Library is closed, even if your item is due, but will be responsible for any damaged item fees if books are damaged due to being left outside if the drop box is full. Thank you for your help!

FYI: The PA Department of Revenue has started to discontinue the practice of processing bulk orders of paper tax forms- the Downingtown Library will not be receiving Pennsylvania State Tax Forms in 2019. For more info, please visit:
