About the Library

We are a small public library situated on the Tioga River Valley of North Central Pennsylvania. Our library is a great place to spend time reading, learning, sharing, growing and playing. The library, which was defunct during World War II, was reformed in 1946 under the name Blossburg Memorial Library as a way to honor those who served in any way during that time. It continues to honor those living and deceased from the community. The library has free programs, activities, and events for people of all ages, as well as books, dvds, audiobooks, public computers, and many other resources for our patrons. We are a safe and fun place to spend time with friendly staff and volunteers. Our welcoming children’s area encourages active play, as well as reading. Come check out what we have to offer!
