Get Connected at Elizabethtown Public Library!

Elizabethtown Public Library is the place to connect. You can connect with new neighbors and seasoned friends in the Coffee Company and you can connect with your interests, from recipes to travel. The Library is here to help you make your dreams come true.

From databases that will help complete school projects and business research to pre-school story times, the Library helps educate and expand your horizons. The Library also stocks recreational books by your favorite authors in all kinds of formats. Library holdings include music and movies as well. The Library lends unusual items like folding tables and chairs, cake pans and other useful and unique objects. Explore the vast variety of materials at the Library and check us out on the web at www.etownpubliclibrary.org as more items are being added regularly.

Within the Library is a bookstore operated by the Friends of the Library. The bookstore includes a collection of popular and historically interesting books, children’s books and videos for all ages, and a wide variety of items available for purchase. The Friends collaborate with local artists, showcasing and selling their wares on a rotating schedule. Proceeds from the bookstore go to benefit Library operations.

Also housed within the Library is Elizabethtown Coffee Company. The Shop provides a place where you can enjoy freshly roasted, responsibly sourced coffees, bagged and loose specialty teas and many other refreshing beverages. Whole bean or ground coffee and packaged teas are available for purchase. Snacks and pastries are available, including crumb cakes, cookies, cake pops and more. The Coffee Company operates the same hours as the Library, including Second Fridays. Small groups are encouraged to meet within the Coffee Company while larger groups can be accommodated in other areas of the Library.

The Library is an official passport application center and takes passport photos. Appointments are highly recommended for passport services. Lending services are available to everyone. Residents living in the Elizabethtown School District will need to show proof of identification and residency to apply for a free Library card. Anyone living outside of the Greater Elizabethtown Area with an Access PA Library Card is also eligible for a free Library card. Others are eligible for a Library card for an annual fee.
