Special Announcements:



Our Giving Tree is ready for the season. The Giving Tree is an opportunity to help the library by making a wish come true. To participate all you have to do is take a tag off the tree, buy the wish and give the tag and item to the front desk. We hope you like these pics of the team effort. THANK YOU to Chris, Karen, Ms. Mel and Ms. Andie!!!






We held the Commissioners’ Breakfast where we shared highlights of the past year and goals for the future. THANK YOU to the Marple Township Commissioners for your support of the library.

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.
