The York Public Library traces its history to about 1915 when 35 men and women met to form a permanent library organization.  During its early years, the library had several different places to call “home.”  For about 20 years, between the mid-1940s to the mid-1960s, the library was located in two rooms in the War Memorial Building, also known as the McNeel home, on North Congress Street.  In 1968, the library moved into its own home when a new 4,000 square foot building was constructed, also on North Congress Street, and remained on this site for 37 years.

    The former post office at 21 East Liberty Street was purchased in 2002 with plans to renovate and expand this facility into a new library.  Construction began in October 2004 and the new York Public Library opened its doors on October 23, 2005, with a grand opening in the 11,800 square foot building.  With the opening of this facility, an expanded library collection could be offered, as well as public meeting spaces and the addition of 14 computers for public use.

     The York County Library system has a headquarters library in Rock Hill, and four branch locations in Clover, York, Lake Wylie and Fort Mill, as well as a bookmobile that travels throughout York County bringing library services to all residents.
   
York County Libraries participate in a state-wide consortium of eighteen libraries, which means that library card holders may borrow books, DVDs, and other items from any library in the consortium.  By pooling their resources, member libraries can offer a collection of more than 2.5 million items.  After placing a hold on the item, it will be
delivered to your local library, usually within a few days.

    All York County Libraries offer a variety of free programs and events for all ages from infants to senior citizens.  Summer reading programs for children, teens, and adults are held June-August at all York County Library locations, with prizes,
programs and performances to encourage reading during the summer.

    
Many services are available through the library’s web site at www.yclibrary.org,
including the library’s online catalog, more than 30 electronic databases, Brainfuse online tutors, Mango  language learning, and more.
 All York County Libraries offer use of computers with Internet access to the public at no charge.  All branch
libraries offer meeting room space for community groups and non-profit organizations.
