About Us

The Fleetwood Area Public Library serves the Fleetwood Borough, Maidencreek Township, and Richmond Township communities. Our mission is to drive the Fleetwood Area forward by providing equal access to quality resources and technology, encouraging an early and lifelong commitment to learning, and strengthening our community through the programs and services we provide.

 

We Drive Fleetwood Forward by providing equal access to quality resources and technology.

  • Identify, acquire, and maintain a collection of physical and digital materials that meet the needs of the Fleetwood Area.

  • Partner with the Fleetwood Area School District and other local organizations on successful ways to share resources to provide better access to all within our community.

  • Continuously evaluate technology resources in order to maintain their efficiency and effectiveness.

  • Bring library resources out into the community through visits from library staff and satellite library collections.

We Drive Fleetwood Forward by encouraging an early and lifelong commitment to learning.

  • Provide programs that support early learning literacies and participate in state and county wide initiatives like 1,000 Books before Kindergarten, One Book, etc.

  • Cultivate a strong relationship with the Fleetwood Area School District (FASD), correlating our goals with the school’s curriculum and Profile of a Graduate.

  • Maintain a space with resources and tools for patrons to learn a new skill or expand knowledge in order to become successful in the workforce and contribute to the community.

  • Promote growth mindset and lifelong learning through our programs and  resources.

We Drive Fleetwood Forward by strengthening our community through the programs and services we provide.

  • Create a new and engaging space for all community members to inspire creativity, embrace diversity, and deepen our perspectives.

  • Provide the opportunity for peer to peer learning so that our community can collaborate, encourage, and grow together.

  • Collaborate with FASD, YMCA, Berks Encore, PA Forward partners and other community organizations to create a community calendar, resource center, and cooperative programing opportunities.

The Fleetwood Area Public Library is located in what was the library of the former Fleetwood Area Jr. - Sr. High School. This building housed grades 7-12 until 1967. In the '67 - '68 school year it housed grades 6-12 on a split day schedule, with grades 9-12 attending morning session and 6-8 attending afternoon session. In 1968 the building became the Fleetwood Area Middle School, housing grades 6-8. In 1989, a new Fleetwood Area Middle School was built and this building was sold to the Fleetwood Borough and became the Fleetwood Community Center. Most of the shelving in the current library was in the school library.
