Thanks for joining us for Harry Potter Day!

Our second annual Harry Potter Day library fundraiser was a huge success! Thanks to the approximately 220 people who participated, and all of the volunteers who helped the event to feel magical! We raised $3,000 for the library, which will go towards building a Story Book Walk in Little Crum Creek Park! Check out photos of the festivities, below:

Free and Clear and Open!

Good News! The Library and Borough Building got an "all clear" today from Lucy, the bug sniffing beagle! Join us for an education session about bedbugs on Wednesday, October 12 at 10 am.

Annual Fund Drive Letter

Keep a look out for your Friends of the Swarthmore Library annual fund drive letter.

"And you can bet on the fact that the library’s return on investment is very high. In fact, according to the American Library Association’s library value calculator, which calculates the monetary worth of library services, our library’s market value is nearly $542 million. That’s a lot of value in a little building!"
