Changes to Public Works and Library Services Due to COVID-19 Surge

Posted on Tuesday November 17, 2020
Please note the following changes for the safety of the community and Township employees amid rising numbers of COVID cases

Due to the rising infection rate of COVID-19, the Township is taking some proactive measures in an attempt to control and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The following temporary changes to Public Works operations will be in place today (11/17) through November 30th, and will be re-evaluated at that time for the safety of our staff.

  • The Waverly Road Compost Facility will be closed at 2:00pm to residents and landscapers who have dumping permits.  The Saturday hours of 10:00-2:00 will remain the same.
  •  There will be no weekday drop offs of recycling, trash, and bulk furniture at the Public Works Facility. Saturdays will remain open from 10:00-2:00.  Please Note: The Township calendar lists the Public Works Facility to be closed for the holiday 11/28; however, it will now be open Saturday, 11/28 due to this change.
  • The front office will remain open 7:00-1:00 during the week for payments and permits; access by the front door only.
  •  Permitted landscapers must dump by 2:00 pm.

The Cheltenham Township Library System will also be temporarily limiting services and service hours as follows:

  • Curbside Contactless Pickup remains available.  Call or place a hold online, and you will be notified when your materials are available for pickup.
  • Grab ‘N Go remains available. Call or make an appointment online to pick up a librarian-selected pack of youth books.  You may select a theme or age range when you make the online appointment.
  • Phone and Email Reference remains available. You may call with questions on databases, e-resources, computer assistance, or a topic of your choice, or email your question at Ask a Librarian on our main webpage.
  • In-Person Browsing of Library Resources is temporarily suspended.
  • In-Person Computer Appointments are temporarily suspended.
