The Chester County Library provides informational, educational and cultural services to the residents of Chester County. Go to for more information.

The Chester County Library System was organized in 1965 to serve Chester County’s 760 square miles, 15 boroughs, 57 townships, 1 city, 14 school districts and 498,886 residents according to the 2010 census.

It is a federated system made up of 16 member libraries with 18 library facilities. It is overseen by a seven member Board of Trustees appointed by the Chester County Commissioners.

The Chester County Library, a county-owned institution with one branch, serves as the system headquarters and is also designated as the District Center for a state-defined library district congruent with the county borders.
