The Library was founded in 1960 by the Federated Women’s Club of Warminster and housed in a room of the Township Administrative Building with a collection of 2,000 volumes collected from the community. The library was open 10 hours/week from 1962-1964, and moved twice between 1965-1970. The first was into a farmhouse at 265 W. Street Rd and then to a ranch house at 380 N. York Road.
The collection grew to 5,000 items by the end of 1970 and was open 20 hours/week. From 1971-1974 the Library moved to the lower level of the Township Building and then ultimately constructed and moved into its current 15,488 sq. ft. facility at 1076 Emma Lane in 1976/77.
In September 2012, the Library became a Department of Warminster Township.
In 2017, the Library increased hours and added Sundays.
