Mission Statement

The Helen Kate Free Library is dedicated to community engagement, literacy, and providing its patrons with excellent service.

Description

The Helen Kate Furness Free Library was founded in October 1902 by a group of Nether Providence citizens as the Horace Howard Furness Free Library, named in honor of one of the founders, a renowned Shakespearean scholar whose estate, Lindenshade, was located in what is now Furness Park. The Helen Kate Library has a strong tradition of dedicated volunteers, which has been significant to the success of our beloved neighborhood library. With one of the smallest paid staffs of any library in Delaware County, Helen Kate relies upon the support of volunteers to provide quality service to our community.
