The Chester County Library Trust ensures the ongoing excellence and innovation in library services at Chester County Library in Exton, its branch library, and the District Center. As a District Center Library, the Exton location has a strong circulating and reference collection to provide a greater depth of library service and support for the 18 member libraries in Chester County. Funds generated from the Trust help to build collections, expand current services, provide new services, and support equipment and building improvements.The Trust serves as a long-term endowment for the sustainability of the Libraries’ future and supports current projects that could not otherwise be afforded. Each year, the Chester County Library Trust Board determines where the greatest impact can be made. This year the Trust gave $42,200 to support initiatives to continue early literacy learning through the Chester County Library StoryWalk®, expand eMaterial collections to meet patron needs, and grow the library as a community hub, specifically by hosting author programs and the purchase of virtual/augmented reality equipment.The Chester County Library Trust is able to fund these projects only through the generosity of our many local donors. There are several ways to support the Trust either online or by mail. Whether it is a memorial or honorary gift online, a monthly donation through your employee giving program, or a planned gift in your Will, your support ensures the community’s library needs are met today, tomorrow, and beyond.
