Face masks that cover the mouth and nose are required for entry. 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 will be no seating for quiet study, research, reading, or meetings. Public access computers will be available for 30 minute sessions only. Print, copy, and fax service will be available but only exact change will be accepted.

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

Our hold shelf is moving to a new circulation desk located in our lobby, so all holds (both children’s and adult materials) will 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. We look forward to serving you in person again!
