Your Library

Your Haverford Township library account card entitles you to use the services of any of the 26 Delaware County Library System member public libraries and most libraries in Pennsylvania. If HTFL does not have a particular resource, customers can usually request the item through our Library website or with the assistance of Library staff.

The HTFL Staff and Library Board of Trustees are dedicated to doing everything possible within their power to help meet your educational, informational and entertainment needs. We recognize that our only purpose for being is to help you.

We also recognize that the presence of a library says so much about the quality of life in a community and having a library says a lot about the type of community that leaders want to offer their constituents. So, we are grateful for the support given to the Library by Haverford Township. Likewise, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania also provides pivotal funds and services alongside Delaware County in insuring HTFL library operations current and future. We also are grateful for the support that we get from citizens and organizations in our region.

One precious source of strength for us is the Friends of the Haverford Township Library, a non-profit organization that provides monetary and logistical resources for Library services and development. Do consider joining as fundraising and advocacy are essential undertakings!

But, above all else, our most valuable asset is our customer base -- the residents of Haverford Township and surrounding areas.  Our citizen-customers are our purpose for existing.

Sincerely, it is a privilege and a pleasure to serve you.

Please visit us often in person and online.
