The Library's roots go back to 1794 and the founding of the "Norristown Library Company" by 90 families residing in Lower Merion, Norriton, Plymouth, Providence, Whitemarsh, Whitpain and Worcester Townships. The Library was formally incorporated in 1796. One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Thomas McKean, signed the charter issued in March 1796 establishing the corporation.
We are located on the corner of Swede and Elm and Powell streets. There is parking available under the building on the side facing Swede, and also across the street from the entrance that faces Powell.
