Since it was founded in 1946, the Harford County Public Library System has grown to include 11 branches, with an annual circulation of more than 4.5 million items serving more than 176,000 registered borrowers.

In addition to books, the library system is a repository for recordings, cassettes, magazines, newspapers, CDs, DVDs, puzzles and even puppets. It provides public access to computer catalogs with printers, microfilm reader-printers, programs for children and adults, information services, reading development materials, an online community information directory, Internet access, health information, tax assistance and volunteer opportunities.

In 2011, the County Council passed a budget amendment to reinstate Sunday hours at several branches.
