The Fleetwood Area Public Library is located in what was the shop 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. The library moved from the upstairs (former library of Fleetwood Area Jr.- Sr. High School) location in 2020. Our new location is state of the art with brand new flooring and shelving. It has been quite the transformation.
