Face masks that cover the mouth and nose are required for entry for everyone over the age of 2. If you are unable to wear a mask, we are happy to offer No-Contact Self Pickup Service as an alternative. We ask that you keep your visit limited to 30 minutes.

There is no seating for quiet study, research, reading, or meetings. Beginning Monday, November 30 public access computers will no longer be available due to increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in our area.

The total number of people allowed in the building at one time is limited, so if our occupancy is full, you may have to wait to be admitted.

Our hold shelf is now located in our lobby, so all holds (both children’s and adult materials) should be picked up just inside our front door. If you require no-contact pickup service, we can arrange that as well. Please email hsmith@elancolibrary.org or call us at 717-354-0525 and specify that you are requesting no-contact service.

Please return all materials before you enter the building. There is a book drop located directly to the right of our front door and another one across the parking lot from the front door.

All library materials are held in quarantine for a full week before they are checked in.

  • It may take several days for your books and items to register as checked in.  Your items will be backdated to the date you returned them so you won’t accrue any fines.
  • Do not renew items you returned to the library!  These items may still appear to be checked out on your account because they are in quarantine.  Renewing your returned items may incorrectly place a fine on your account.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work together to ensure the health of our community. Please help us to stay healthy so we can keep our doors open!
