National Library Week

Adamstown Area Library encourages everyone in our community to visit the library during National Library Week, April 23-29, to explore all we have to offer.

Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from picture books and large print to audiobooks and eBooks. But there’s so much more to the story of libraries.

Libraries are welcoming spaces that bring communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, lectures, and more. Adamstown Area Library offers a wide array of programs, classes and resources, as well as a Library of Things that includes children’s costume kits, baking kits, museum passes, musical instruments, and yard games.

And libraries play a critical role in the economic vitality of communities by providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for job seekers and local businesses. Adamstown Area Library supports the communities of Adamstown, Denver, Brecknock, East & West Cocalico townships with services such as job fairs, resume assistance, and technology training.
