The Free Library of Northampton Township is a full-service library with over 120,000 print and non-print items including books, magazine, books on CD, electronic books, DVDs and Blu-ray movies, music CDs, and video games.
The library has wireless internet throughout the building as well as computers with internet access, word processing, and other software programs. There is also an extensive computer database with current and back issues of magazines, reference resources and downloadable music and movies. The library offers a full range of programs for everyone.
The Free Library of Northampton Township began as an idea in 1966 when the Northampton Woman's Club began investigating the possibility of a library to replace a once-a-week bookmobile visit. Three years later, the Township partnered with volunteers to transform a Nike base barracks into a library.
As the years went by, the use of the library grew beyond expectations. The library shared its facilities with the Council Rock Senior Center from 1985 until the Senior Center relocated to a new building in 2004. At the same time as the Senior Center's relocation, construction began on an expansion project for the library to triple its size to 30,000 square feet. Construction was completed in the fall of 2006, making the library a true landmark in the community.
