We love our local library in Phoenixville because I have one daughter who reads with avid interest, often checking out a huge stack of books she can barely carry. After enjoying the luxury of reading several entire series at the library, we visited a local bookstore. She came up to me with ten books in hand. I balked and reminded her that we had to pay for these and they were almost ten dollars each. She was allowed to buy one.
Conveniently, my daughter learned how to go online to check out books from throughout the entire Chester County library system and have them sent to Phoenixville. We are e-mailed when they arrive and are ready for pick up. If you catch them before their due date, you can even renew online.
In addition to the wonderful books the Chester County Library System provides many story time activities, after school clubs and weekend workshops. Check out the library events calendar for more information.
