NEW EPL Website &
Online Museum Pass Reservation System!

The library has just launched its new user-friendly website! Whether you visit www.eastchesterlibrary.org to register for a program, find your newest eBook,

at your fingertips! 

While on our website, check out our new online museum pass reservation system. The link to the system is featured prominently on our main page and allows patrons to reserve museum passes up to one month in advance. Our new reservation system includes a link to the museum and its exhibits as well as important information regarding current COVID policies in place at each institution.

All you need to reserve a museum pass online is your library card number and your password. Museum passes circulate for three days and are limited to one pass at one time per family. If you are a Friend of the Library who lives outside of the Town of Eastchester, just call the library and we will make the reservation for you. 
Any questions? Call the library at 793-5055 for assistance.
