Find Great Digital Reads

Robert F. Lambert
YCL President Robert F. Lambert explains how we are here for you in this York Daily Record/York Sunday News editorial.

As librarians – and most admittedly bibliophiles – having our next great read within easy reach and being surrounded by collections of  intriguing books is what gives us joy and purpose.  We love creating our book collections to peak the interest of readers so they want to take the books home to discover what’s inside.

We are here for you

With the temporary closure of our brick and mortar locations to help slow the spread of COVID-19, we are currently unable to get physical library materials into the hands of library members.  However, we want you to know that we are here for you, your family, friends, and neighbors. 

We’re Enhancing Our Axis 360 Collection

Our professional obsession – with books, facts and trustworthy resources – flows easily to providing online digital materials for you to borrow and enjoy.  We want to make sure that you have access to library materials when you need and want them.  Our collection experts are busily enhancing our eBook and audiobook collection on Axis 360, adding popular and interesting titles.  Try searching “recently added” to find the newest books.
