Donations to the library are always accepted, with our deepest gratitude. Individuals and businesses can make a gift to the Library in any amount at the link below.



Our Adopt-A-Brick Program of engraved courtyard bricks is a great way to honor or remember a loved one. For a $75 donation ($45 tax-deductible), your honoree can become a permanent part of our walkway, memorializing their love of reading and of our West Chester community. 


Your time is a gift! If you can help at the library with time or talent, we'd love to talk with you.

Holiday Home Tour 2020: Door Tour

Thanks to the generosity of acclaimed West Chester artist John Suplee, we are pleased to offer for sale signed and numbered 24″x18″ prints of the “The Reading Room,” depicting West Chester Public Library’s beloved and historic main floor. Created and donated by the artist to support our 2018 Building Our Future Annual Appeal, the original painting was awarded to the winner of a drawing for major donors to the campaign. The first 50 prints sold will come with a coupon for 15% off framing at Visual Expansion Gallery, 132 N. High St., West Chester.
