The Fendrick Library is proud of the part we play in the local community through the programs that we sponsor. Although the library serves all age groups in the community, we feel it is important to promote and encourage reading and appreciation of the library to children and youth.
We therefore offer a Weekly Story Hour on Wednesday mornings throughout the school year. It is an hour filled with stories, crafts, activities, and a snack for pre-schoolers (siblings welcome). Mothers and fathers are encouraged to attend with their children.
Each summer after school lets out, the library offers its "Summer Reading Program". This program is assigned a theme each year, with activities and crafts and books to read all referenced to the theme. In 2019 the theme was "A Universe of Stories". The program ran from June 12 through August 7. For a summary of the SRP CLICK HERE. A special thank you to all of our local business sponsers for the 2019 Summer Reading Program.See all of our sponsers HERE. Summer Reading Program has special programs, prize drawings, contests and more planned for ages preschool to teens.
Book discussion groups for adults and young people are available. Guest lecturers on topics of interest as well as book signings by local authors are scheduled as often as possible.
The annual "Used Book Sale" is held annually during Mercersburg's Spring Fest in May and Mercersburg's Town Fest in September. It always attracts quite a crowd.
