Students/families with Oxford Public Library cards can access summer reading titles through our local Oxford Library branch. Additionally, the Oxford Branch is a part of the much larger Chester County Library System, through which patrons can access hundreds more titles by placing an interlibrary loan request. You may place a request for these titles in person at a branch, over the phone, or by logging onto your account on CCLS.org.
Call the Oxford Public Library for more details: 610-932-9625.
Need to apply for a library card? Present the following items in person at one of the CCLS branches: a completed application, identification proving Chester County residency, and for students under 18, a parent signature.
CCLS also provides access to digital eBooks and audiobooks through the Libby app.
Get help getting started with Libby here. These titles can be accessed from the Libby eReader app using your public library card number. Click the icon for more information.
*HELPFUL HINT*: Do your parents work or own property in other counties or states? If so, they are probably eligible to apply for a library card in those locations, giving you more ways to access summer reading titles.
