The Royersford Free Public Library will continue to offer contactless pickup ONLY for the foreseeable future.

Unfortunately, we cannot currently accommodate in-person browsing due to structural issues with our building. At this time, we do not know when we will re-open fully, but in the meantime, please note that we are still offering contactless pickup, virtual programming, telephone assistance, and library card applications. We will provide updates regarding our services here and on our Facebook page as soon as possible.

Hours of Operation

  • Sunday CLOSED
  • Monday 10:00 am-5:00 pm
  • Tuesday 10:00 am-7:00 pm
  • Wednesday 10:00 am-5:00 pm
  • Thursday 10:00 am-7:00 pm
  • Friday 10:00 am-2:00 pm
  • Saturday 10:00 am-2:00 pm

Contactless Pickup

You may order materials by:

  1. Requesting items online via the catalog
  2. Calling us at 610-948-7277 or 610-792-3097 to place requests over the phone.
    • If you aren’t sure what you want, give us some clues and we will gather a book bundle for you.

You will receive notification once your materials are at the library. When you are ready to pick them up, call us (610-948-7277 or 610-792-3097) to schedule your arrival.

Virtual Programming

You can view all of our events on our page of MC-NPL’s website. Upcoming events are also listed on our Facebook page.

Apply for a Card

You have two options for registering for a library card:

  1. Fill out the online application.
    1. This option takes a little longer. Within a few days, the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library will process your application and then email you your account information. Only after you receive this information will you be able to place requests online or check out materials.
  2. Print out the application and arrange for a time to bring it to the library.
    1. After you complete the form, call us (610-948-7277 or 610-792-3097) so we can arrange a time for you to bring it over. We will issue you a card during this visit and you will be able to check out materials right away.
    2. If you do not have access to a printer, call us (610-948-7277 or 610-792-3097) and we can schedule a time for you to fill out the application on site.

 

Thank you for your patience as we navigate these unforeseen changes.

Join now! If you read just one book a night starting before your child is 2, you will have read over 1,000 books by the time your child starts kindergarten! Our program makes it fun, with incentives for every milestone you reach–1 book, 25 books, 100 books, 250 books, 500 books, 750 books and 1,000 Books. The program is intended for children under the age of 5 years.

The One Thousand Books Before Kindergarten initiative is designed to:

  • Promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers.
  • Encourage parent and child bonding through reading.
  • Help young children gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.

Studies show that children who are read to from birth have an easier time learning to read.

You can sign up and log your progress here:

https://mcnpl.beanstack.org/

You can also track your progress with the Beanstack Tracker mobile app which is available for both iOS and Android. The mobile app includes the ability to scan the barcode from the back of the book for easy logging.

Teen Volunteers

The Royersford Free Public Library is happy to accept teen volunteers. Anyone aged 13-17 should come to the circulation desk to pick up a Youth Volunteer Application. Anyone aged 14-17  must complete a PA State Police Criminal History Clearance (PCHC) and a PA Child Abuse History Clearance (CAHC)*. These are free for volunteers. Those aged 18 and older must also complete an FBI Fingerprinting Report.

Volunteers have the opportunity to:

  • Assist with programming
  • Prepare crafts
  • Clean
  • Decorate
  • Shelve books

Attention: Due to high demand, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate everyone. Those seeking volunteer hours for the National Honors Society should consider having one or more backup locations in order to obtain all required hours. Hours are first come, first served, so submit your applications as soon as possible!

 

Adult Volunteers

Unfortunately, the Royersford Free Public Library is not accepting adult volunteer applications at this time.

 

*Please note: Due to the requirement of government clearances, the Royersford Free Public Library cannot accommodate individuals seeking court-mandated community service hours.

By August 15, 2018, we managed to read 1,432,260 minutes, and nearly 900,000 of them were from our elementary age group (4th grade and younger)! Thank you to every single reader, parent, performer, and prize donor who helped us reach our goal of one million minutes! We couldn’t be prouder!

We also want to send a heartfelt thank you to all our generous sponsors who helped make this year’s Summer Reading Program possible!
