About Us:

The Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library is a non-profit corporation 501(c)(3) supported by appropriations from Montgomery County Commissioners Municipal Government, Norristown Area School District, and additional income is derived from bequests, grants, gifts, fines and fees.

The Library's roots go back to 1794 and the founding of the "Norristown Library Company" by 90 families residing in Lower Merion, Norriton, Plymouth, Providence, Whitemarch, Whitpain and Worcester Townships. The Library was formally incorporated in 1796. One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Thomas Mckean, signed the charter issued in March 1796 establishing the corporation.
