The mission of the Pittsylvania County Public Library System is to connect people with the information, experiences, and resources they need to make their lives better.
Pittsylvania County is the largest county in Virginia at 978 square miles. Located in the south central part of the state on the border with North Carolina, the county surrounds the city of Danville on three sides.
The county library system was established as the Chatham Library Association in 1939. The system has grown and now consists of five libraries: the main library, located in Chatham, Virginia, and branches in the town of Gretna, Brosville/Cascade (west of the city limits of Danville), and the Mt. Hermon area of the county, as well as a History Research Center and Library, also in Chatham. The library also has a bookmobile that makes approximately sixty stops a month throughout the county.
