Kaltreider-Benfer Library Opens May 23 at Temporary Site South Charles Street Location Closed for Construction

Kaltreider-Benfer Library will open with limited services at Windsor Manor Elementary School, 2110 Windsor Road, on Monday, May 23. According to Kaltreider-Benfer Library Executive Director Don Dellinger, members should use the school’s Second Street entrance and rear door 5A to access the library. Thanks to the elementary school and the Red Lion Area School District, the library has a temporary place to operate while its permanent location at 147 S. Charles Street is closed for expansion and renovation. The construction project is expected to be completed in early 2023.
 
Kaltreider-Benfer Library will operate during the following hours at the school: Monday and Wednesday 2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and closed on Saturday and Sunday. Community members with questions should call the library at (717) 244-2032. The library will offer book checkout and return, browsing of new items for kids and adults, browsing of large print books, holds pickup, DVD rentals, and SummerQuest registration and activities. In addition, members can scan and make copies at the library, and access printing services by emailing files to be printed.
 
Unavailable services include faxing, computer access, restrooms, and seating. Because the library does not have a book drop at the school, after-hours book return is not available. The book drop at the South Charles Street site is also closed during construction. Library materials should be returned during Kaltreider’s operating hours or dropped off at any YCL location. Directions and hours are available for other locations at yorklibraries.org. 
 
“Kaltreider-Benfer Library is the third of our campaign projects to get underway,” says York County Libraries President Robert F. Lambert. “We announced the projects in April 2019. Since that time, Kreutz Creek Library’s new building is complete. Martin Library’s extensive renovation is about to cross the finish line, and Kaltreider-Benfer Library’s expansion project is starting to roll.”  
 
Kaltreider-Benfer Library is temporarily located at Windsor Manor Elementary School at 2110 Windsor Road in Windsor PA. Its permanent site at 147 South Charles Street in Red Lion is currently under construction. It is a member of York County Libraries which includes 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and digital information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, digital story times, book discussions and 80 databases. Collectively, the libraries have an extensive collection of over 642,000 physical items, and more than one million digital library materials for loan. All are available for free with a York County Libraries card which can be requested at yorklibraries.org.
