So much more than books.
Welcome to the West Chester Public Library! Located in southeastern Pennsylvania, we provide all community members equal access to information, ideas, and knowledge through books, programs, and other resources to support lifelong learning.
Let's find a book!

Don't miss the fun at our next Trivia Night! Test your knowledge in four ever-changing categories. Questions are geared toward adults, teens and older kids. Register to receive a Zoom invitation in your email. Past categories have included Current Events, Philly History, Schitt's Creek, 2020 Commencements, Pandemic Food Trends, Road Trip from Washington State to West Chester, On the Couch with Netflix, and We the People.
Special COVID-19 Format: We're now virtual! Participants will need two devices: one to view the trivia questions via Zoom, and the second to input your answers in the Kahoot! app, which you can download for free. There's no need to register every family member if all are playing on the same two devices, but if a family member is using their own phone or tablet to answer the questions, they should register separately.
