Northampton Township is a growing suburban community of some 40,000 residents. The 26 square mile municipality is located 12 miles northeast of Philadelphia, PA. The first Europeans to come to the Township were English immigrants who arrived with William Penn in the late 1600's.
It was these settlers who named the area after Northamptonshire, a small village outside of London. The Township was incorporated in 1722.
By that time, Dutch farmers joined the English colonists to settle in places destined to become known as Richboro, Holland, Churchville, Rocksville, Addisville, and Jacksonville - all located within Northampton Township.

The Free Library of Northampton Township has a collection of 113,000 print and non-print items including books, magazines, books on tape and CD, electronic books, videocassettes and DVDs. We have computers with internet access and word processing programs, computerized databases with current and back issues of magazines, and a county-wide computerized catalog of the libraries' holdings.
We offer programs for all ages- from story hours for preschoolers, toddlers and babies to computer classes for senior citizens. Annual library attendance is over 200,000 (an average of more than 700 persons per day); 70% of the township's 39,384 residents are library cardholders.
The library shared the Northampton Township Cultural Center with the Council Rock Senior Center from 1985 until the Senior Center relocated to a new building in 2004. At that time construction began on a library expansion project. Construction was completed in the fall of 2006. The library grew from 10,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet.
