A huge thank you to the Cocalico Lacrosse Boys’ Team!!!

On Saturday, May 7, about 25 Cocalico Lacrosse Boys’ Team members with energy and muscle came to the old library and moved the books onto the trucks in about 15 minutes and then helped to unpack the books at the new library and put them on the shelves.







The 2022 Basket Bingo will be held Sunday, October 2,

at the Reamstown Fire Hall.

More details to come.

If you would like to sponsor a basket or fill a basket, please contact Margaret Harting, President, through the Contacts link above.





Experiencing keen disappointment, the Friends’ Board arrived at the decision in 2022  to postpone until November 2023 one of  our  favorite fundraisers, the Bucks for Books Dinner/Auction.  For years, we yearned for a new library.  Now we have a beautiful new exciting building and funds are needed more than ever, and the library always looks to the Friends for help.  With all the considerations needed to host an event like this, it just wasn’t  feasible to make it happen.


If you are able, contributions to the Friends would be greatly appreciated and would help compensate for the loss of that event’s earnings.  If you would like to make a donation, please make your check payable to  Friends of the Adamstown Area Library, and mail it to:


Joy Maier, Treasurer

7 Arabian Court

Reinholds, PA  17517


In the meantime, if you have items you were holding for the auction, please continue to  keep them and we will use them when we have another fun (and hopefully virus free) evening in November 2023.


Thank you for understanding,

The Friends’ Board of Adamstown Area Library




Another way you can help us….we always run out of the brown Weaver’s shopping bags for our book sale, so during the year could you please save your bags and bring them to the library when you get a pile?  If you want to be really helpful, double bag them for us.


Also, the Amazon team uses bubble wrap and (new) mailing envelopes to send our books.  We would appreciate donations of those items also to help us cut costs.



Want More Choices???


We have resumed offering books on Amazon, so check us out there for some unusual finds.  Also offering another choice, we maintain a large bookcase of books for sale at the Mad Hatter Antiques.  And, if you are a frequent patron at the library, you will know that there is also a bookcase of books available for sale as well as some free books.    We’re trying to help you find your favorite books at a great price!




Do you know that The Friends are selling high quality books on


Visit  In the search box, type Friends of Adamstown Library.  You will then see a listing of our available books.  Click on a book, then look for our name under Seller on the right side of the page.  All proceeds from the Amazon sales will benefit the building fund for our new library.  Happy Shopping!


Our Amazon team is busily working away and it is highly successful with our online sales.  In fact, some additional help would be most welcome.  A few minutes of training is all that is needed if you enjoy doing some computer time.  If interested, leave your information with the staff at the library checkout desk.


Check out the library website to see the fundraising activities of the Trustees.


Everyone loves the Adamstown Area Library.
Help keep it strong and vital!


We look forward to seeing you around the library.
