Friends of the Chester Library

The Friends of the Chester Library is a volunteer group that supports the Chester Public Library by fundraising and hosting programs for the benefit of the Library in conjunction with the Staff and the Board of Trustees. Through various fundraising events such as the annual Breakfast with Santa/Holiday Basket Raffle and Penny Wars, the Friends support the Library by providing:

  • Funds for Library equipment
  • Funds for Guest Programs
  • Museum Passes
  • Funds for Summer Reading Program
  • Volunteer support for events hosted by the Library

We are the Library's primary source of non-tax dollars, helping promote literacy and offering community programs and events to benefit all Chester residents.

Help us make a difference! Join the Friends of the Chester Public Library. Our meetings are on the first Monday of every month at 7PM in the Library Meeting Room. Our Google address is:
