A CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

York Public Library Centennial Celebration

Celebrating 100 years of serving our community 

The York Public Library Association (YPLA) was incorporated on May 29, 1922. First order of business: build a library. A Building Committee was formed, and two months later, on land leased to the YPLA by First Parish Congregational Church, ground was broken for York’s first public library building.
