Introducing, Picture Book City at Swarthmore Public Library!

The children’s picture book collection has been rearranged in a manner we hope will help children feel more capable and independent when finding books in the Library.

Check out our new interviews with Swarthmore personalities!  Our first interviews are with extraordinary local historian, Nancy Webster, and the beloved longtime owner of Swarthmore Hardware, Charlie Devaney.  You heard it first here!

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens 13+.

We are delighted to offer new additions to the popular museum pass program at Swarthmore Public Library!  We have 10 passes available.

A community treasure since 1929, Swarthmore Public Library has a great collection of books for adults and children.  We also have dvds, books on CD, music cds, great courses, and more.

Storybook Walk

Take a walk and enjoy the story at SWPL's Storybook Walk at Little Crum Creek Park!

Our Storybook Walk is a children’s picture book, displayed page by page in permanent installations along the paths in Little Crum Creek Park. Begin your walk on Cresson Avenue then wind along the path by Little Crum Creek, through the field, and back again while reading a fun story. The book will change several times a year, so you and your family can keep coming back to enjoy a new story.
