Free Library of Northampton Township

Accomplishments & History

The Free Library of Northampton Township has made huge strides since its beginnings in 1966 when the Northampton Woman's Club began investigating the possibility of a library to replace a once-a-week bookmobile visit.  Township Supervisors established the library in 1969 with volunteer help that transformed a Nike base barracks into a library.  With library use growing beyond expectations, the library moved to its present location in 1985 and shared the building with the Council Rock Senior Center.  The Senior Center moved to its own location in 2004, and the library embarked on an expansion project that tripled its size in 2006.  Today, the library has over 126,000 books, dvds, and spoken books available for checkout.  With its three meeting rooms, wireless access, and abundant computers for public use, the Free Library of Northampton Township is a true community center.
