Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

YORK-After temporarily shutting its doors nearly two years ago for renovations and a building expansion, the York County Library will officially reopen at 10am on Monday, March 20.

Circulation and reference services, public computers with print capabilities, and the use of study and group rooms will reopen at full capacity. Due to the continuation of minor construction projects, some areas of the building will remain closed, including the children’s wing.

Once fully opened, the facility will offer an auditorium with a stage for performances, a technology makerspace lab, and a local history area.

Hours of operation will be 10am to 8pm Monday through Thursday, 10am to 5pm Friday and Saturday, and 1pm to 5pm on Sunday. The York County Library is located at 8500 George Washington Memorial Hwy. in Yorktown.

Patrons are encouraged to visit the library’s website and Facebook page for updates.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
