About the Library

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.

The mission of the Newtown Public Library is to encourage the joy of reading, the exploration of ideas, and the pursuit of lifelong learning for all.

The library is a member of Delaware County Libraries (DCL) which is comprised of 26 member libraries located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. The library card you receive at Newtown Public Library is accepted at all DCL locations.
