I want to order a book online and I didn’t see Oley Library listed as a pick up location? Why not?
We are not on the Berks County Library website as a pick up location because we are not a recognized member of the Berks County Library System. If you do not see an item in our library you are looking for we will gladly purchase it and add it to the library.
Can I order books from other libraries and have them delivered to Oley?
No. Unfortunately the Berks County Public Library system does not allow us to be a part of this.
Can I return books from other libraries to Oley?
YES. The OVC library now has van service to and from other libraries in the county. Return books from other libraries to our library and they will be returned to the correct library. Return our books to other libraries and they will be brought back to our library.
Do I need an Oley Library Card?
If you have a Berks County Library Card we can use that to enter you in to our system. If you do not have one, we can add you to our library system. We do not use library cards.
I don’t have a Berks County Library Card, can I get one at Oley Library?
Yes! Ask the librarian for an application!
Do you have computers? Printer?
Yes. We currently have 4 computers and a printer for public use. Our print outs are $.10 per black and white and $.25 for color.
We also have 4 Mac Books for public use.
Do you have a fax machine?
Yes! $1.00 per page
What happened to the Book Mobile?
The Book Mobile was removed from the budget of the Berks County Library System and therefore no longer services our community. The removal of the Book Mobile was one of the catalysts for the creation of the Oley Valley Community Library.
