Explore the Possibilities!

Looking for a good “beach” book? Come in and check out our selection of romance novels and Christian fiction.

We have fiction, fiction, and more fiction arriving every week! Yes, we even have military, history, westerns, and thrillers. Love puzzles or a riveting mystery? We have them. Biographies, non-fiction, and, of course, the classics.

Great selection of “gently used” books including children’s, teens, history, non-fiction, fiction, romance, Christian fiction, mystery, cozy mystery, cook books, and much more!

Carts for book donations are just outside of the library community room for your convenience. You may put your donations on the carts any day during the library’s open hours.

This will be our temporary home until the new Borough Hall building is completed and we will have space given to us there.

Come and check it out!!


Annual Donation

Keeping our commitments to the library is important to the Friends group, so we are especially happy that we can again offer our annual donation of $25,000 towards the library expenses of providing children’s books and programs.

Thank you to the community, whose support made this possible.


Do you know that The Friends are selling high quality books on

Visit In the search box, type Friends of Adamstown Library. You will then see a listing of our available books. Click on a book, then look for our name under Seller on the right side of the page. All proceeds from the Amazon sales will benefit the building fund for our new library. Happy Shopping!

Our Amazon team is busily working away and it is highly successful with our online sales. In fact, some additional help would be most welcome. A few minutes of training is all that is needed if you enjoy doing some computer time. If interested, leave your information with the staff at the library checkout desk.

Another way to help us out — the Amazon team uses bubble wrap and (new) mailing envelopes to send our books. We would appreciate donations of those items also to help us cut costs.

Want More Choices???

We have resumed offering books on Amazon, so check us out there for some unusual finds. Also offering another choice, we maintain a large bookcase of books for sale at the Mad Hatter Antiques. And, if you are a frequent patron at the library, you will know that there is also a bookcase of books available for sale as well as some free books. We’re trying to help you find your favorite books at a great price!
