Newtown Township is proud of its’ excellent public library. Its roots are traced from humble beginnings in a small house on West Chester Pike in 1974. In 2001 as a result of a combination of private contributions and a township general obligation bond issue for over 3 million dollars, the Newtown Township building was expanded to provide an 8,400 square foot modern facility on Bishop Hollow Road. This facility is staffed primarily with volunteers from the community and is managed by a full time Librarian and is partially supported by the Delaware County Library System.
The library hosts a selection of over 58,000 items available for checkout including a variety of books for children and adults, DVD and Blu-Ray movies, educational & Instructional DVDs, books on CD, magazines, newspapers & journals, music CDs, grandparent & exercise kits and the latest video games. The library also provides free access to downloadable e-books, audiobooks, subscription databases including ancestry.com and home online consumer reports, access to services like tutor.com, free access to a Kindle and Nook and much more.
A Library Board is appointed by the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors as provided for in the Library Code of the State of Pennsylvania. The Library Board of Directors meets every third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm at the Newtown Township Building. These meetings are open to the general public.
