Become a Member. Become a Friend. 2022


When you become a member, you contribute to Chestnut Hill's most vibrant and essential community center. The Chestnut Hill Library is an asset to patrons across Philadelphia and serves neighboring communities through after-school services, school partnerships, and unique programs. We are a community of book lovers and literacy advocates, all dedicated to supporting the public library.


Our annual membership program is designed to reward book lovers. Your membership helps ensure that we are able to sustain our programs and support accessible, community-based library services. In 2022, Friends donations have supported children's author visits, funded repairs at the library, sponsored work opportunities for Teen Library Assistants, and supplemented the collections' budget to keep relevant, new books on our library shelves. 


Annual membership runs December 1, 2022 through November 30, 2023. In an effort to conserve resources, you will not receive a membership card in the mail. You will receive membership confirmation via email and your membership is considered valid once you complete the transaction.
