Jacobs Technology Center



In 2008, the Chester County Library public computer center was renamed in honor of Mr. John W. Jacobs for his generous bequest to the Chester County Library Trust.  The Jacobs Technology Center (JTC) has 20 computers for use by the public for up to two hours.  A valid Chester County Library System card is recommended but not required. The Center is open during all library hours, but closes 10 minutes prior to the library closing.  The Center also includes a Digital Media Lab & Makerspace (DMLM).  Typically, there is no wait for a computer; however, you may reserve one in advance.  Please contact us at 610-344-4395 for more information.

The staff of the Jacobs Technology Center is highly skilled in the use of various software applications and offer free hands-on workshops for various skill levels to suit your needs.

In addition to our computers, the John W. Jacobs Technology Center is equipped with the following:



One Black and White printer
One color printer
CD and DVD readers and writers
