About Our Library

Welcome to the Hamburg Public Library. We are one of the oldest libraries in Berks County, founded in 1903 with a gift of $10,000 from Andrew Carnegie to establish a library in Hamburg. This money constructed the building still in use and stocked the shelves. The library opened its doors on November 5, 1904. Also in 1904 Theodore Roosevelt was elected President; the first Subway line in New York City was opened, and the United States acquired control of the Panama Canal for the price of $ 10 million. We still provide services to the Borough of Hamburg and the service area of the Hamburg School district as well as Berks County as a whole and the surrounding counties, providing WiFi services, Fax Machine, Photocopying, free tax service to seniors, adult and children programming and the usual library services loaning out books, audio-books, music CDs, DVDs and reference services.
