The Bucks County Free Library is a seven-branch county library system with locations in Bensalem, Doylestown, Langhorne, Levittown, Perkasie, Quakertown, and Yardley-Makefield. Beyond our physical branches, the Bucks County Free Library makes our extensive collection of e-books and audiobooks available to all Bucks County residents.
The county library system was founded in 1956 by a resolution of the Bucks County Commissioners. The library is governed by a seven-member board appointed by the County Commissioners. As a designated Pennsylvania public library district, Bucks County Free Library shares a public catalog with 11 additional public libraries in Bucks County. These libraries are independently governed and managed by their own boards and directors. Their contact information is on our Locations page.
