About the Library
Upper Chichester Library was founded in 2001 by two local boy scouts, George and Greg Daniels, who collected over 10,000 books and established the library in its present home today The Willowbrook Shopping Center. After 16 years of service to the Upper Chichester Community the library is still an independent, public library.
