Welcome to the West Chester Public Library

West Chester Public Library (West Chester, Pennsylvania) is a destination for connection, collaboration and enrichment through knowledge and community engagement.

Thank you to everyone who donated to the Lift Replacement Fund! We are getting ready to apply for a state matching grant to fund part of the replacement costs and your donations are key to a successful application. We’ll keep you posted on the progress of this project.
