Beginning March 1st we will once again be in the CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE DELIVERY and GRAB-AND-GO IN-PERSON phase. Contactless Curbside Delivery means books and other items can be ordered by phone (610-583-0593), by email (RidleyLibrary100@gmail.com) or online (ridleylibrary.org) form. We will collect your items and deliver them to you outside the front door of the building. Grab-and-Go In-Person Service means a limited number of patrons will be allowed inside the building to browse briefly and then check out their books and other items. Masks and social distancing will be required.

At this time the meeting room, the quiet room and general seating will be unavailable. Group gatherings are not allowed. Our newspaper and magazine collection is not available for extended reading at this time.
Books and other items MUST be returned to our book drop near the front entrance. All materials are then quarantined for 24 hours before they are put back into circulation.
Please continue to use our outside book drops for ALL returns. That includes board games (that are able to fit), cake pans, Hotspots, museum passes, Rokus and Kindles. Library of Things items and Pre-School Learning Tools may be returned inside the library at the circulation desk.
Keep in mind that all returned materials will be removed from your account after the quarantine process, which at this time is 1 day. No late fees will accrue during the quarantine period.
Hotspots will be available for 3 day ($6), 1 week ($10), 2 weeks ($20) and 1 month ($30) check out periods. Any Hotspot not returned after the due date will be shut off. Fines will be $3/day.
We will still offer our Faxing service ($1/page) plus scanning (no charge) and remote printing ($.15/copy). Our Notary will be available during most of our open in-person hours. Please call to make an appointment during our extended curbside hours and to check availability. The charge for all notarizations is $5.
We will still have many online events and programs during the upcoming months. Please check our Facebook Events page or www.ridleylibrary.org for a full list of events and programs. We will be available for Reference questions online, over the phone, or in person during our in-person business hours.
At this time we CANNOT accept any book donations for the book sale. Once we are able to safely accept donations, we will let you know!
