The Town of Chester Library is part of the Southern Adirondack Library System. If we don't have what you're looking for, you can search all member libraries, order online and pick your books up in Chestertown.
The Town of Chester Public Library’s Ruplin Gallery was named in 2003 after Ferdinand Ruplin, a very generous early supporter of the Library. The gallery is located just inside the main entrance to the Library.
