Mission Statement

West Chester Public Library provides a welcoming and open environment that enriches the community with its resources and technology as patrons pursue knowledge for pleasure, work, and life.

Description

West Chester Public Library serves the greater West Chester community with materials, programs, and information for all ages. The library circulates over 150,000 items annually from its collection of 53,000 books, DVDs, CDs, e-books and magazines and sees over 105,000 visits per year. The library’s PCs and free wi-fi connection provide community access to the Internet as well as up-to-date document creation software. Programs include children’s story times and Summer Reading Club, and book discussion groups and special programs for adults.

Founded in 1872, WCPL moved into its current location at the corner of North Church and Lafayette Streets in West Chester in 1888. The original 19th century building still serves the community as its library, albeit with 21st century improvements and amenities incorporated during an extensive renovation and expansion in 2004-2005.
