Kennett Library is a regional public library open to all and serving the Townships of Kennett, East Marlborough, Pennsbury, Pocopson, Newlin, New Garden, West Marlborough and the Borough of Kennett Square. We provide a place for the youngest to the oldest and everyone in between and serve people of all incomes, ages, and needs – for free.

Kennett Library is on a mission to ignite imagination, enrich lives, and create community with a vision to be the catalyst for a community of lifelong learning and discovery. We connect people with reading, information and technology to expand curiosity, explore interests, and discover passions. We provide a friendly, helpful, stimulating environment that is built on free access to library resources and the exchange of information. 

We are a place to meet, a place to learn, to teach, to share, to connect, a place to build, to expand horizons.

The New Kennett Library & Resource Center opened in the summer of 2023!

The Kennett Library is a private 501(C)3 that is a member of the Chester County Library System.
