About Us

The Sinking Spring Public Library strives to be place to stimulate creativity and intellectual curiosity as well as facilitate a love of lifelong learning for the residents of the Borough of Sinking Spring and all of Berks County.

All libraries of the Berks County Public Library System are fine free for traditional materials including books, DVDs, CDs, and audiobooks on CD owned by system-member libraries.

Select materials are still subject to fines based on the unique nature of those items. Fines are calculated by calendar day when the item's owning library is open and by material type.

  • Museum passes — $1.00/day Overdue Fine
  • Inter-Library Loans (ILLs) owned by a library outside of the Berks County Public Library System (library determined)
  • Equipment such as hotspots, tablets, eBook readers, etc. (library determined)
  • Library of Things materials (library determined)



Long-overdue items will be marked LOST and are subject to fees regardless of their fine free status. Fees can include the replacement cost of the item along with an administrative fee.
