We’re talking Bingo here. 

Longaberger Basket Bingo. 

Library Friends Bingo. 


The baskets are big and beautiful.  Sponsors and Fillers are being contacted.  Tickets are being sold.  ($20 at the library).   If you can help us in any way, please contact the library staff with your message.

It’s all happening on Sunday, March 17, at the Reamstown Fire Co.  Doors open at 12:30, giving you time to purchase your lunch (chicken soup and grilled hot dogs on the menu again).  Time for the raffle tickets, 50/50 and all that good stuff.  Plus catch up on the latest with your friends and neighbors.  Advance game time is 1:45 and regular bingo starts at 2 pm.  Looking forward to seeing you!

A fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!




We’re cruising Down the River…the Mississippi River, that is.  Join us on this fundraiser for the library Capital Campaign.

We’re sailing off on June 20, 2020 (2019 already booked) with American Cruise Lines starting at New Orleans and heading north to Memphis, Tennessee.  (9 days, 8 nights)  Lots of excursions in between and things to do.

Travel arrangements (shuttles, flights, etc.,) are all being handled thru the Reading AAA.  A presentation will be given at the library on Jan. 29 at 7 pm.

Fliers will also be available at the library or you can also contact Judy Nichol (484-1447) , Marj Hyrb (484-4047) or Margaret Harting (336-7145).  The ship is small, the tours are advertised nationally, so reservations are needed ASAP.

Come Aboard!!




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.


HELP WANTED  !!  Can you lift up to 40 pounds??  Can you spare an hour a week or whatever your schedule allows?  We really need help in moving bags and boxes of donated books to our bottom level book sorting area.  If you can help us, please give your name and contact information to the library staff.  Thank you so much.


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.


Margaret Harting,
Friends of the Adamstown Area Library

Libraries are free….except they really aren’t.  Please help us continue to fund the library and the many services it provides to the community.


The Friends’ donations of $100,000 for the capital campaign and $25,000 for the Tranquility Garden for the new library are in keeping with their goals to support the library and to make a worthwhile learning facility even better. That’s what Friends are for!
