Hamburg Public Library

On December 8, 1988, the Hamburg Public Library was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, an honor well deserved. Within Berks County, it is the longest continuing library, the first building designed as a library that is still in use and the first library built with funds from Andrew Carnegie. The Hamburg community can take pride in its library’s century of nurturing the reading interests of the citizens of Hamburg and surrounding communities. With ongoing community support and interest, the Hamburg Public Library will continue and prosper in these tasks for at least another century.
