Chandler Public Library
In August of 1954, the five-year dream of the Chandler Junior Women’s Club became a reality when the doors of the Chandler Public Library were opened. The group conducted a door-to-door campaign to raise the necessary funds to construct the building ($5,560 total cost) and provide for a small collection of books. As evident in the abundance of support received, the entire community felt that it was important to have a library of its own. Once the doors were opened, the keys were turned over to the City of Chandler for continued operation.
Today, the Chandler Public Library continues its commitment of being the reading, learning, and cultural center for the community. With four locations in all geographic areas of Chandler, library users have the opportunity to meet and interact with one another, as well as sit quietly and read in an approachable and inviting environment, with high-speed access to the digital world. As the information leader, we provide a variety of resources, in a variety of formats, so library users of all ages can explore topics of personal interest and continue to learn throughout their lives.
It is through the abundance of resources, inspiring spaces, professional and committed staff, that the Chandler Public Library strives to be the BEST public library.
