The Coatesville Area Public Library (CAPL), founded in 1877 by Isabelle Lukens Huston, occupied several temporary locations in its early years, beginning in what was described as a “small shack” on the site later occupied by Devitt’s Hardware. In the early Twentieth century, when the YMCA became established in Coatesville, the Library was invited to use an area at that location. As library use continued to grow, more space was needed and that prompted a move to Benner School in 1941, where the Library used two rooms.
By 1948, Benner School was experiencing crowded conditions of its own so the Library moved to rooms at the National Bank of Coatesville.
