NOTICE: Starting Monday (12/16), the library restrooms will be temporarily closed for renovations.  Public restrooms are available on the building’s lower level.

NEW CHARGING STATION: A HUGE THANK YOU to the Brinker Organization for sponsoring our new Charging Station. Thank you for helping make Marple Library a local favorite place.





Marple Library Earns PA Forward Gold Star: PA Forward is a statewide initiative under the PA Library Association (PaLA) that places the spotlight on Pennsylvania libraries and their important role in the community. By proving that we promote the five literacies that are the backbone of PA Forward (Basic, Information, Civic and Social, Health and Financial) we’ve earned the gold star.

Marple is the first library in Delco to reach this achievement!  Picture with Commissioner Liaison Dan Leefson and Marple Library Director LaTanya Burno during the Marple Township Board of Commissioners meeting recognizing this achievement.


During our August 9th celebration we were honored with a Certificate of Recognition from the Office of Senator Kearney and a House of Representative Citation presented by State Representative Jennifer O’Mara. Congratulations to the amazing staff, Board of Directors, volunteers, donors and community partners who have made Marple Library a local favorite place.
