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.

The West Chester Public Library has served the people of West Chester continuously for 150 years!
Through a five-year campaign, THE NEXT 150: Stewarding our Future, we are striving to raise $1.5 million to ensure that we can endure, grow, and innovate through the next 150 years.
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.
