What is Included in the Databases?
The Chester County Library System (CCLS) provides access to over 30 Electronic Resources covering everything from Car Repair to Genealogy, from a Business Directory to a Language Learning Resource. They also range from searchable indexes with full-text of journal articles or newspaper articles to learning tools, from animated children’s books to complete reference books.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries provides a suite of electronic resources to public libraries and school libraries called the POWER Library. The Chester County Library System, through state funding, provides the remaining resources. Most of the databases are available remotely with the use of a Chester County Library System library card. Here's how you can get one.
