The Media-Upper Providence Free Library is a nonprofit organization providing materials and services for the public’s educational, recreational and vocational needs. The Media Library Association was organized by the Woman’s Club of Media in 1901. The Library became a member of the Delaware County Library System in 1981.
We’ve come a long way
1901 Woman’s Club of Media organized the Media Free Library Association to be located in a single room on the second floor of Borough Hall.
1908 the Media Free Library Association erected a building behind the old Media Borough Hall that was originally the Media Post Office.
1954 The Media Free Library Association moved into refitted former private school bequeathed by the Sprogell Estate.
1959 Library service extended to Upper Providence in agreement for continuing financial support.
1966 Women’s Club of Media raised money to construct library addition and purchase adjoining property.
Since 2016 the Media-Upper Providence Free Library
The building features the library collection, cozy public areas to read and relax and access to public computers on the main level. The second level features three meeting rooms used for Library programs and available for room rental. The lower level houses the Library’s book sale.
