The Library will be closed for the winter months, due to the winterizing of the restrooms. Our last day open will be Monday October 29, 2018.

We will re-open April 6, 2019, when the restrooms are again functional. Please watch for our opening flyer in the Post Office and on the Library door.

Thank you to all our patrons and volunteers who made this such a terrific season!

Hours of Operation: 
Monday 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Wednesday: 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The library is closed on all governmental holidays throughout the year.

We are located at 51 N 5th Street, between the township municipal building and the park. Look for our new banners!

We have five internet connected computers for public use along with a very nice selection of books, movies, and cds. There is a children’s corner where kiddies can come in and color, play with blocks or just hang out. Stop in and say HI !

If you have books that need a new home, please think about bringing them to the library during normal operating hours. We appreciate all donations!


Are you interested in getting involved with the library or volunteering a few hours a week? The more volunteers we have, the more hours we can be open for everyone to enjoy our facility. Please call Peggy Seitzinger at 610.488.1984 or Diane Ross at 610.488.7422. Thank you for your continued support!


To Upper Bern Township Board of Supervisors,

The Shartlesville Library appreciates the donation to help support our efforts.
