Welcome to Jenkintown Library, a special place for Jenkintown residents. Offering a rich history of service and commitment, the library features a wealth of information and materials, best sellers, and up-to-date technology.
The Jenkintown Library was founded in 1803. It is the oldest library in continuous service in this area and the third oldest library in the county. This property was acquired by the Library Society in 1909 and subsequently enlarged in 1912. In 1979 the library was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A community room was added in 1983. Today, Jenkintown Library continues to be an integral part of the cultural and social life of the community.
