We Are Reopening!

Beginning June 15, the library will permit holds pickup by appointment only during limited hours. This helps to safeguard vulnerable populations and to maintain a rigorous cleaning schedule.

Wernersville Library is still using the state-wide library catalog, and can place orders for items located out of county for our patrons to pick up at Wernersville. Patrons wanting books from other Berks County libraries must go to that library to pick it up.

All programs will continue virtually until more guidance is received from the state.

No member of the public will be allowed in the Library for any reason.

Because updates and best practices are constantly evolving, please continue to check our social media channels and website for the most up-to-date information.

Returning Library Materials

All due dates for items borrowed before the shutdown are extended to July 31. All items returned will be placed in a three-day quarantine, so items will still appear on your library account for at least three days after being returned.

In order to avoid a large influx of items, we ask patrons to follow this schedule for returning library materials: 

  • Patrons with the last name beginning with A-E should return materials during the week of June 22–27
  • Patrons with the last name beginning with F-L should return materials during the week of June 29–July 4
  • Patrons with the last name beginning with M-S should return materials during the week of July 6–11
  • Patrons with the last name beginning with T-Z should return materials during the week of July 13–18

No donations will be accepted until further notice.
