This library is very nice. The employees are so pleasant and helpful. The location is prime and the hours are super convenient. My only suggestion would be to get a newer printer and computer attached... to it. Other than that no complaints. Keep up the good work. See More

This library is never open. Always shutting down for something. I have two books on hold to pick up and now they are closed again till February 20th.

Our phone lines remain out of service. We do not have an estimate for when service might be restored. Phone inquiries can be directed to other neighborhood libraries. Thank you and we are sorry for the inconvenience.

Please be advised: The Fox Chase Library is currently without phone service.


Today is the third Thursday of the month, so the Fox Chase Library will have a delayed opening of 2:00 for professional development. Materials can be returned to the book drop boxes in front of the library or renewed online or over the phone.

Verizon is working on fiber-optic line replacement at the Fox Chase Neighborhood Library today, which can result in some (hopefully brief) phone outages. Please bear with us!

We are closing at 4:30 today due to excessive heat.

**UPDATE: We went to try to get the bird at 9:45, and it had taken off. We will keep a lookout and see if he returns.
