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.





WCPL’s 5th Annual Literacy Links Invitational!

Saturday, March 16, is the day and 10am to 3pm is the time to bring the family for a great day of miniature golf between the library stacks presented by MacElree Harvey, Ltd.

During the event, the upper and lower levels of the library will be converted into a mini-golf fairway, with tees, greens, and holes sponsored by local businesses and individuals. Kids of all ages are invited to play mini-golf and enjoy our popular entertainers: Magician Matty Whipple will debut new tricks to delight and amaze, Jim Burkhardt of Balloons by Jim will wow with his fantastic balloon creations, and face-painter Gaillynn Giles will turn faces and hands into canvasses for her intricate designs. A make-and-take craft, snacks, a bake sale, and our “Celebrate West Chester” raffle, featuring gift cards and items from numerous local businesses, round out the day’s offerings (see below). Admission is $5 person.

In addition to lead sponsor MacElree Harvey, Ltd., the Literacy Links Invitational is sponsored by Dr. Timothy Blair, Fulton Bank,  Cerner Corporation, the O’Neill Family Charitable Trust, Arthur Hall Insurance, the Barn Hoops Foundation, Brandywine Coach Works, Brenna and Sean O’Hara, Pepper Hamilton LP, RC Taylor Group, Side Bar & Restaurant, Wiley Car Care, Wegmans, and Giant Food Stores. Everyone who comes out to play in the Literacy Links Invitational will be supporting the operations and programs of the library.
