    New Restrictions

    With the declaration of a state of public health emergency, comes new restrictions around COVID-19. There are 2 different options available to businesses and organizations. Management has chosen to go with the Restrictions Exemption Program to enable us to offer the highest levels of service and a wide variety of programming. 

    Starting September 20, we will be requiring proof of vaccination or negative rapid test result from anyone requesting entry into the library.  We are continuing to offer additional options to ensure that we can offer a high level of service to everyone, including anyone who cannot provide one of these documents. We are still offering curbside service and we have contactless delivery straight to your door inside the city limits. We are always happy to help with reader’s advisory, selecting items, and placing holds for you.  We want to help wherever we can, so please contact us if we can help with anything. info@chestermerepubliclibrary.com

    Novel Book Club is coming back Thursday October 7th at 6pm

    October book selection is: Dial A for Aunties by Jessie Q. Sutanto.  Copies are now available at the library.  When Meddelin Chan ends up accidentally killing her blind date, her meddlesome mother calls for her even more meddlesome aunties to help get rid of the body. Unfortunately, a dead body proves to be a lot more challenging to dispose of than one might anticipate, especially when it is inadvertently shipped in a cake cooler to the over-the-top billionaire wedding…
