Norwood Public Library is Laying Out the Welcome Mat!
We mean business! Norwood Public Library will reopen to the public on Monday, January 30, 2017 at 11:00 AM. The library has been on hiatus for renovations since October. The NPL Board of Trustees and Staff has worked collaboratively with Norwood Borough officials to reach our goal: a new roof, HVAC system and interior lighting has refurbished the existing facility and enhanced the functionality of the library for patrons. Staff and Board of Trustees thanks Norwood Borough Council and staff, the Delaware County Library System, surrounding libraries and the library community for their commitment and support during the renovations. Your investment in the Norwood Public Library has ensured a continuing chapter of public service in Norwood!
While the Library will be open for regular service on Monday, we invite all to celebrate the reopening on Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 10:00 AM to Noon. Giveaways, prizes, kids’ activities and refreshments will be available.

These passes admit 2 adults and dependent children in the household; check with Museums for number of children and other restrictions. Pass may be borrowed for one week, it must be booked through Library Staff and must be picked up at the NPL. Staff cannot guarantee that Passes will be available for dates requested. Overdue fine of $5.00 per day will be incurred if passes are not returned by due date; $50.00 replacement fee will be charged for lost passes. Patrons must be 18 years old to borrow the pass. Call the Library for more details or to book the pass.
The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PAForward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing:
With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.
