About the Library and Its Services


It is part of the Delaware County Library System and is open to the public seven days a week. While there has been a library in Radnor Township since 1809, the Library has existed in its current incarnation since 1892, having celebrated its Centennial in 1992. The Library is proud to continue its strong commitment to community service. The Library offers a wide range of services and a varied selection of materials. Residents have access to information and reference assistance, Internet for public use, (Wi-Fi) Wireless Internet connection with your own laptop, online subscription databases, homebound service, lectures, book discussion groups, and other special events, many of them sponsored by the Friends of the Library.


The Radnor Memorial Library will be the community’s destination for discovery – a place for cultural and intellectual enrichment and life-long learning.


The Radnor Memorial Library provides access to information, programs, collections and resources to satisfy the intellectual and information needs of all members of our community, and serves as our community front porch, which enhances our quality of life.

As the Library works to fulfill this vision and mission, the Library will:

  • Serve as a hub for community activity for all ages, from children and teens to older adults.
  • Provide a warm, inviting space that creates opportunities for quiet study, conversation, browsing and programs.
  • Bring people together to provide intellectual and cultural focus for the community.
  • Offer materials, programs and staff to support life-long learning.
