front-entranceThe Milton Public Library has been serving the community since 1923.  It is currently located on 6 acres of beautiful manicured lawn that showcase an abundance of cherry trees. The stone house was purchased and the renovations completed in 2012.

The $4 million dollar project offers a 11,000 square foot library, learning facility and rental space opportunity. It’s truly a library unlike any other in the state of Pennsylvania.

The library retains multiple pieces of the original architecture including a wall safe, two fireplaces and the front doors from which our logo is derived.

Our mission is navigated by the following assumptions:

  • A responsibility to offer free library services
  • The borough’s commitment to a municipal library
  • A responsiveness to the community
  • Utilization of technology
  • Cooperative efforts with other borough organizations, other libraries, and other agencies
  • Commitment to intellectual freedom for everyone served

The Board meetings are held monthly and are open to the public.

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month at 6:00 PM at the Library.
